80th Birthday Celebrations...

Hiya Crafty Friends,
I am now able to share with you a card I made for my Husband's Auntie, who recently turned 80!!  I'm so glad she loved it!! ... I made it using her favourites pink/flowers with touches of gold!! I had recently purchased some Dawn Bibby Creations dies, and thought they were very apt to use here...I sooo love them, they are so versatile and compliment my other crafty stash from other companies!!  Here is my finished card, what do you think?
My Project 
Products Used 
Dawn Bibby Creations - Fantasy Fusilier, Fantasy Fern, Blossom Stamens andd Blossom Branches dies
Spellbinders - Grand decorative oval dies

I made the card using gold non shed glitter card from my crafty stash and die cut using Spellbinders grand dies, layering with white lattice glitter card..To this, I decorated with die cut vellum flowers, stamens and branches, also butterflies.
