Commissioned 80th birthday card

I was asked to make an 80th birthday card for a lady who loves flowers, so I thought Anna Griffin supplies would fit the bill. The A5 card blank isn't Anna Griffin - bought a pack of them some time ago and still have a few remaining. The centre rose and the small one at the bottom right are decoupaged. The gold foiled sentiment label was from Craftwork cards.

I've used flash photos as I needed to hand the card over and the first two don't show the more vibrant colours of the card, whereas the third one showing the inside is more true to life.

This is for:
