Pride and Prejudice themed card for the Cinema Saturday 100th Challenge

I made this for the Cinema Saturday's 100th Challenge.
They revisited the movie that inspired their first challenge, Pride and Prejudice.  I've seen both versions, but love the 1995 BBC mini-series version.  You can join in through November 18th, and some great prizes are being offered up.  
For my card, I chose to capture the theme of marriage.  All the women and younger girls were so interested in catching a husband, except Elizabeth.  And yet, in the end, she came to find her mate in Mr. Darcy.  I love that their relationship was not a flirty, love at first sight type of love, but one that was born out of mutual respect and knowledge of each other.  They are "true companions."  

I tried to capture the style of the time period in the subtle wallpaper and added a simple line at the waist of MFT's Girls Day In lady to mimic a simple dress.  Added a "diamond" to her hand as her engagement ring.  
Papers are Basic Grey.  Ribbon and lace from my stash.  A couple hat pins and a Martha Stewart doily stamped with a sentiment from Raisin Boat.
Thanks for looking!
