60th Birthday Card... for 3 challenges..

Good Evening!!
Just popping on to share a card I made for my MIL's 60th Birthday, she has recieved it now, so its okay to show it...
it was a tricky one to make, as I wanted to avoid using a cute image, and make it pretty, but not too old fashioned, cos she's 'young at heart'...
Here it is...
 The papers are all MME Quite Contrary...
I handcut the numbers...
Flowers are all from hobbycraft..
Rest from stash...
as this is a really thick card, I had to make a box to match, but I forgot to photo it... doh!!
anyway, I'm entering this for the following challenges....


Thanks for looking!!

Goodness me Paula, this is lovely. The spray of flowers is the perfect way to set of the figures.
