Wedding card

I was asked to make this card by my niece, whose fiancé's brother was getting married. The card isn't exactly a card as it doesn't open, it's a postcard format with cream paper on the reverse for writing on. As usual, the card itself is recycled from an old Amazon  box, the ones that DVDs come are especially good for this purpose.
To make the card extra special, I used vintage paper as the base [on the front] and for the envelope. Paper was taken from the covers of various old art journals and was at least 60 years old. However, the flowers were cut from modern magazines and the text was printed then stained in a little warm black coffee for that aged look.
