Wedding card with some metal

Over at Simon Say Stamp and Show the challenge of the week is to use some metal on your creation.
I made a card for my friends' wedding. This is not only a card but their present in the same time. 
I used a lot of different things to make this card. Firts I downloaded some old vintage advertisments about travelling to Ireland and also a pic of a pub ( thanks for those who shared them). I edited these into a 6x6 square and printed them. This is the background of the front of the card.

The front is all about travel and journey, because my wedding gift for the couple is a short visit to Dublin.
I made the flower with the TH die and put some metal pieces in the middle to make it like a compass.
The inside of the card is quite simpe, I just put their name, destination, and time as it was a flight ticket.

I used DP from K&Co and also Making Memories. Distress Inks: Rusted Hinge, Brushed Corduroy, VIntage Photo. Text is written with my calligraphy pen.

I hope you like this idea, thanks for visiting me.
