60th Birthday Card

Good Morning!
I just thought I would share with you all the Birthday Card I had been asked to make for someone my Mum works with.
You may notice that it isn't my usual style due to the Stamped Image I have used. I have to admit though I didn't like these stamps at first but now they are one of my favourites!

The card had to include:
Pink
Art Deco Style Stamped Image
The number '60'
Pearls
Feathers
Flowers
Space inside for the rest off the Staff to write in

Do you all think I managed to fit the bill?

This also fits into the Challenge at:

I have decided to show you the inside so you could see the Birthday Sentiment I chose to use.


RECIPE:
Dimension Fourth Art Deco Stamp
PB Stamped Sentiment

Feathers & Adhesive Pearls from Stash
Prima Flowers & Roses from Wild Orchid Crafts
