A VERY Special day for my Husband and I Today

Today is a VERY special day for my husband and I.
 For those of you that are old enough, what were you doing 25 years ago today?
 25 years ago was the day we became husband and wife.  It hasn't been an easy time as most of our 25 years, apart from a few years, I have been ill but we have "weathered the storm" and today we are celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary.
Here is a picture of us all dressed up for a "black tie night" on our first cruise last September.  We paid for a photograph to be taken with the Captain as I bought a posh dress.
Well onto my card for today.  I Love making easel cards but hate having to get on the floor to try and get a photograph!!  I have used a card kit that I purchased from Crafts U Print.  The kit was by Sandie Burchell but I can't seem to find it.  It included everything to make the card as is but obviously I took it further using my own white card and mirri card.
I have finished the card off with a Glossy Accents on the glasses of champagne, ribbon bow, heart button, flowers (these were die-cut from some gorgeous tissue paper from Hobbycraft, scrunched, held together with a brad and finally Stickles glitter glue rubbed over them for some sparkle and shine), Sue Wilson die-cut greenery (Pine Twig - CED3054) and Nuvo silver pearl drops.
