50th Birthday Roses

I have just made this 50th birthday card using the sketch from this week's Mojo Monday Challenge. I tend to shy away from sketch challenges but felt like a change and this is the result. I have decided I really must use up some of the many papers and embellishments I have bought over the years but never used. These papers and decoupaged roses are all by Anna Griffin. The colours match the bottom right floral embellishment very well but I am not sure if that is Anna G or Kay & Company. I used a rose punch on the green mat and threaded a length of pearl string through it, then attached a strip of cream paper behind the cut outs. The paper lace is left over from a pack I bought at Lakeland Ltd many moons ago. The white organza ribbon is from The Mulberry Bush and the Celebrate stamp is by Stampin Up.
