Commission for a Special 85th Birthday card

This card is a special card for an 85th Birthday. I made an 8x8 card using two peices of cardstock joined together. I covered the front using this gorgeous K&Co paper which I got last year while I was in America. I added a border of gold velum edged with a Martha Stewart punch and layered onto some some dark pink bazzill cardstock. The sentiment was printed on the computer, distressed around the edges with antique photo ink and matted and layered with the velum and another piece of lighter coloured  K&Co paper . I added three rows of gold organza ribbon gathered into a bow in the middle. The flowers are from Wild orchid crafts, they are beautiful, I added some punched fronds and leaves cut from the the backside of the K&Co paper, a few pearls and some glitter.After all that I discovered that  an envelope wasn't deep enough to hold the flowers so I had to make a box.
