80th birthday card

This is my design card for A bit more time to craft September challenge 3 - always anything goes. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and join in our challenge - lovely prizes to be won. Big apologies to Lozzy and the team for my lateness - the card was done and as a draft on my blog some days ago, but I forgot to add to for the challenge blog - big apology.

A friend commissioned me to make an 80th birthday card with the request of pink/lilac colours and flowers. The shimmery background paper and the decoupage flowers are from a set bought some years ago. The computer generated greeting was matted on to a snippet piece of Hot off the Press paper, another offcut being used for the panel beneath the number and flowers.

This is also for:
