80th Birthday Commission Card

There is only one thing harder than making a card for someone you don't know and that's making 2 cards for the same person !!
Hopefully they will be totally different, here's the first one ......

I went back to a kit today this is Kanban's Bella Fiori...
I made the insert with two sheets of A4 paper (off set to each other) to make it look lacy using a Martha Stewart punch and inked it with Tim Holtz Dusty Concord distress ink.
I cut the edge off the front of the A5 card and then stuck a border strip from the kit onto it. 
The next layer is thin white card stock again distressed and the third is foiled card stock with a pretty edge. (Cut on my trimmer).
The topper is stuck with foam pads right against the folded edge with some lilac spider web fabric ruched behind it, and some subtle distressed ink round the edges.
The flowers are cut on my rose Spellbinders dies in different scraps of fabrics and net.
I am in love with my new Ebay bargin butterflies-15 for £2.50
To finish I added some matching gems and ribbon ... simples lol ...
PS...The letters and numbers are Cricut Lyrical Letters Cartridge covered with Lilac Stampendous Glitter embossing powder !!
