Decoupaged 90th birthday card

This was a commissioned card for a 90th birthday for a lady with limited sight, so I used decoupaged flowers so there's something to feel as well as bold colours to see. The sentiment was created on computer and printed and cut with a todo decorative oval die, distressing with worn lipstick distress ink before removing from the die. This is an 8 x 8 card. The striped panel on the left is some lovely sparkly ribbon that I've had for ages.

This is for:
