A very Special Birthday Card

In January a very dear friend of mine reaches her 60th Birthday and although I had already created a card for her I thought I ought to try and make something special, as Im sure she wont want to be reminded exactly how old she is I didnt put the actual age on it.
The card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount of pink pearlescent paper, and the first mount is a piece of white pearlescent card that I have cut in half and with one piece I ran it through the embossing machine with a leaf embossing folder and the second piece I used the Chloe lattice stamp on it and then embossing it with a pink embossing powder.
I then placed both of these on top of the pink mount and wrapped a pink organza ribbon around the middle to cover the join. Then I used the flourish leaf stamp and stamped two images in the left bottom corner, then created flowers with a piece of the same pink pearlescent paper, this was done with the flower stamp and more of the same Pink Glitter Embossing Powder from Wow, they were then cut out and dampened with water and crushed afterwards I mounted them up in layers and placed them on top of the stamped flourish. In the center I used a pearl button.
To finish of I have used a beautiful birthday sentiment and mounted it onto yet a bit more of the same pink pearlescent paper and placed it on the right across the pink ribbon.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
