Eightieth birthday

   The Crafty Cardmakers challenge this fortnight has a birthday theme and I made this card for a lady who enjoys gardening and is celebrating a milestone birthday.
   I have decoupaged an image taken from Hunkydory's Little Book of Milestone Birthdays and matted and layered it onto gold mirri, peach and then white card.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Crafty Friends - anything goes
