50th Birthday wishes

We were in Wales at the weekend for the joint birthday/25th Anniversary party of some very good friends of ours. I have known the husband,Imroz, an old medical school colleague of my hubby & his wife Mary (a nurse-like me!) for about 21 years and our kids grew up together for a few years in Saudi. We don't see them very often but when we do we have a great time. This is Mary's birthday card (sorry for the strange position of the card!) I used vintage style papers and toning cardstock. On the smaller card I cut a fretwork on which to mount the '50' which I glittered 'cos I didn't have the right coloured glitter card. I added reversible ribbon, flowers & leaves. I added peach coloured pearls to the numbers and the bottom of the card and a sentiment to the inside.
Carts used:
50, Fretwork rectangle, sentiment- Storybook ('Mary' was cut with the fancy/corner option)
Wow! I don't often make a card with just ONE cart!
I'll show you the Anniversary card tomorrow
Thanks for dropping by!
