70th Birthday Card

Good evening to all my lovely followers and  friends. I hope that you are all coping in the run up to Christmas I feel its sneaked up on me this year and I've still got stuff to do. I've got the decorations up, the cards done and  posted today. So I have now just got food shopping and wrapping up to do also some cards and  commissions to finish before Christmas.
Anyway I'm sure it will all get done it does every year . So onto my card this is a 70th I made recently for a commission.  I have used the Lilacs LOTV stamp that I used recently on a retirement card in slightly different shades of lilac so I hope you like it the person I made it for certainly was very pleased.

Absolutely gorgeous Carole! The lilacs are lovely and your embellishments are beautiful. I especially love the lace round the edge of the card and the 70 in the frame, a great detail.
