80th Birthday Card

My Mother-in-law will be 80 in May so this card is for her. I just hope she likes it as I may have made the colours a bit on the bold side. This card fits the criteria for Cute card Thursday and the sketch Mojo Monday. Cute card Thursday is floral fantasy.
I don't know how I feel about this flower but I may have made it a little big.
I have taken inspiraton from Rach by decorating the inside of the card. This is the first time I have tried this and am pleased with the result.

I used DCWV papers from the spring stack and PB image coloured with Copic pens. The border punch and large flower are Woodware. The sentiment and floral background are free stamps and the brad is Papermania.
Its a lovely night so I am going to put my chimnea on and relax in the garden for a while.
