Commissioned ruby anniversary card

I've been asked to make a ruby anniversary card incorporating red flowers. I've used the sketch for Sweet sketch Wednesday 88:

Papers are actual Christmas ones (but nothing to identify them as such) from BG jovial. The base card is stardream so it has a glittery sparkle to it. The congratulations panel has a piece of vellum stuck over it, which has a rose pattern on it, stamped with some swirls (I think the stamps are Papermania, but not sure). The beaded flowery ribbon, flowers, heart buttons and red gems are all from stash. I distressed the edges of one of the papers and the congrats panel with a red copic. The main paper has had the corners cut with Fiskars nostalgia scissors and the card corners rounded with an Xcut punch.

This is for Cooking it up with Katie 48: show me your reb ribbon corners

The colours are for Curtain call 69:
