Corks a poppin' !

A lady in my office is going to be 50 next week, so I wanted to make her a celebration card. I tried to follow Dawny's fab sketch over at PTW ... I rotated it 90 degrees and substituted a swirl and flower for the "bar" across the main image, plus I added a second lot of text, so I hope it qualifies :-)


I would also like to enter this into two other challenges, namely
Simon Says Challenge #2 which this week is recycle ... my swirls are cut from holographic card which was formerly an Asda tissue box!
E-A-C #36, which is only one scrap paper

And here's the inside ....


Recipe:
Image: Forever Friends, coloured with watercolour pencils and decorated with glamour dust.
Sentiments: See-D "Celebration Messages" (front), Hero Arts (inside).
Paper: Melissa Frances.
Supplies: Swirls cut using Shapeabilities "Doodles"; pink and white daisies by Papermania; pink rose from Hobbycraft; pink flowers (inside) - Prima; pink and silver gems by Papermania, heart shaped button by Doodlebug.
