65th Birthday card-Joanna Sheen-Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady

I was asked by my mum to make a 65th Birthday card 'The Big One' for one of the nurses at the hospital she attends.
And i reached straight away for my stash of Joanna Sheen discs! My mum wanted a lovely bright,flowery and cheerful card and i just love this image from the decoupage section of Country Diary of An Edwardian Lady, i picked a different backing paper from the cd,to match the light green and yellow and using my new 'Marianne Creatables' die, i cut out the ribbon boarder and ran silver rbbon through the holes, my mum wanted 'The Big One' on the card, but i didnt want to detract from the beautiful decoupage, so i decided to add it in a tag, which i printed on MS Word and then cutout using SpellBinders Nestabilities 'Large Deckled Rectangles'
This is a large 8x8 sqaure card, so,as it was being hand delivered i made a nice box to put it in with a matching tag for the lid.
