Commissioned birthday card

I was asked to make a 50th birthday card for a friend to give to her husband. I used a digital music background - the recipient is musical. I swiped the musical instrument with versamark (it was originally lilac) and heat embossed with copper powder. The greeting was computer generated, torn around a perspex oval template and edges with versamark and copper embossing. The big 50 was rescued from a golden wedding card (someone gave me a lot of old cards in case I wanted to recycle anything).The  corrugated card (a snippet left from some packaging), gold foiled sentiment and the padded gingham hearts from stash.

I can show the card now because the recipient has got it and loves it.
