Life begins at 40!

Good morning!
This A5 birthday card is for the lady who turned 40 this week, and for whom I made the necklace with turquoise stones on Thursday. Her surprise party is this evening and I am looking forward to going out and having a giggle with some of the other mothers from the school.
The sketch I used for the card is based on this weeks Craft Your Passion challenge.
The card also enters the following challenges:
Incy Wincy - Faux it Up!
Wild Orchid - Stitch it up
ABC - F is for Flowers
Paper Romance - 3 buttons
Sarah Hurley - Colouring  AND Flowers (2 challenges!)
Crafty Ann - Digi stamp (Lola from Pink Petticoat) and favourite colouring medium (Letraset Promarkers)
Inky Impressions - Anything goes

The digital image is from Pink Petticoat, coloured with Letraset Promarkers, highlighted with Stickles; Labels Nestabilities; Circle and scalloped Nestabilities; Fiskars border punch; all papers and cardstock are leftovers from my stash; as well as the ribbon, buttons and flowers; sentiments created in Word.

Have a nice weekend!
