Card for a Civil Partnership ceremony

I was asked to make a card suitable for a civil partnership celebration. Not many out there for the guys pledging their love for each other is there? Although these will probably get more popular, it's now it's needed.
The brief was "something simple and elegant".
I hope I have captured this - and a quick look in to decide on the insert, the lady requesting the card likes the card a lot.
An embossed piece of white card, edge punched. Matted onto pearlised gold, again edge punched. Some gold, white and black knotted ribbons attached before attaching with foam tape (for more dimension) onto black bassill, edge punched as well. A simple sentiment, stamped and cut on the same angle as the ribbons, matted with the same gold and black. All attached to a simple scallop edged card base.
Job done :)

A challenge or two
