Evening all :)

Hope you're all well! And that 2014 is treating you all quite nicely. 

Here's a 50th birthday card I made for a friend to give his wife, hope you like :)

Image - LOTV The Flower Shop
Sentiments - Printed off the computer
WOC Roses
Spellbinders Floral Oval
Lace I picked up on Amazon
Ribbon from Ribbon Girl
Papers from stash
Aged black frantage powder

Sitckles, Glossy Accents, Liquid Pearls
Coloured with Promarkers and Copics

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
