30th wedding Anniversary card

Good morning Folks!
Today i am showing off a bit with this card.
I got some lovely new papers from DCWV and they just cried out Shabby Chic/Vintage.
I was commissioned to make a card for my Son's girlfriends Parents who are celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary on Saturday (Congratulations to them)
I think it's the first time my Son has ever asked me to make a card for him, so i went all out on this one.
I do hate using my BEAUTIFUL PAPERS, and as all you Crafters know, they are purely to stroke and admire, and not to be used as they were intended to be (Cards and Scrapbooks)
I have a huge stash of the most glorious papers ever, and wouldn't dream of cutting into them or covering them with Photo's, totally forbidden in my opinion.
It must be true because my friend Kim agrees totally with me.
So to cut into this scrummy paper was almost a cardinal sin.
I didn't feel the need to put their names on the front, as they know who they are, and after 30 years of marriage, they also know it's their Wedding Anniversary.
I also wanted to expose as much of the paper as possible, as it is so pretty and sparkly (Shame you can't see that effect)
so i felt less was more on the front, and used as much of the paper as possible....I still have one sheet left to
Anyway i hope you like it.
