Bride and Groom Silhouette

Brrr!!! it's cold and wet still.The family room is nice and warm but the computer is here in the lounge, which could be part of the "Arctic Circle" LOL!!! So will try and keep this brief.
Went to my usual craft group this afternoon, only 3 of us. I stamped a little elephant and coloured so I could make our grandson a card before Sunday.
We had tea out with a couple of friends, Doug and Joyce and also two of our sons and one DIL.
It was our 37th Wedding Anniversary today, so I decided to stay home from choir practise and not rush off from the hotel which I usually have to do. Adrian, had to go up to our daughter's place as she rang and said the water was not going down the drain in the shower so was flooding the room. As he is the landlord, it's up to him to fix it so he went straight there after our meal. It was a blocked drain and he managed to clear it so everything is back to normal. That's great, as there are 4 of them living in the house and all wanting to have showers and get ready for work, it would have been very frustrating!!!
My card for today was made using a sketch and here is what I used.
The basecard is black card from stash. I then layered a piece of white card onto it and also two different pieces of black and white DP. I added a black ribbon with white dots over the bottom of the DP and made a bow and adhered to the middle of the ribbon. The sentiment is from a clear set of stamps by Hero Arts called "Anytime Messages". I stamped the image (which is from Creative Expressions) onto white card and cut it out with a circle nestie die. I also cut a scalloped circle in the black card and stuck them together before mounting onto the card. The inside of the card has a piece of white card and the same sentiment I used yesterday - again from the Creative Expression set called "Bride & Groom"
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Come and Get It Challenge - May Sketch
