Mistletoe, roses, romance and many hastles!

I hope the guy I have made this for and his wife love this card.  I had rather a troubled time making it.

I knew in my head some of the things I wanted to get onto the card but working out the design had me stumped.  I then had a few die cutting issues so improvised a little.  All was going well until I decided to print and stamp onto the pearly card.  I heat set it which made the card warp a little but once well stuck down was OK - as I completed the card and went to photograph it I noticed the printing had smudged!

At that stage I had to pull it apart and start the printing again on a plain card.  I liked the pearl but if it won't work....

The panel behind the couple in the window is stamped with a Penny Black stamp which has holly (left grey) and mistletoe on it.  The rose is a Marks Finest Papers (a Heinrich Company) image.  The colour of the leaves I am hoping matches the colour for their wedding - I saw a quick phone picture!  The dies are from Cheery Lynn.  The sentiment is computer generated and the corner punching and bling finish it off.

I am entering this into Sentimental Sundays challenge too - I hope off-white is OK!

Thanks for looking.
