80th Birthday in the Pink

Good morning to all my lovely friends and  followers I hope you are all enjoying a great weekend especially the Summer weather we are finally having.
My card today is a commission I have been asked to make and its an 80th Birthday card. I've made this card with mostly dies and  flowers so no stamping or colouring today. I saw a fabulous card similar to this on my follower Pam's Blog a while ago I don't have the same dies but got my inspiration from it thank you Pam.
