40th Birthday Card

I made this birthday card and matching money wallet for a friends birthday.(They are actually the same colour but my photography is naff).I finally decided to use some of my new stash. (new as in unopened....lol) The papers are all SU and the number 40 is cut out of chipboard and covered.The card is an 8x8 that I bought at the SECC.
Cardstock - SU Chocolate Chip
Papers - SU Designer Series (So Saffron) & Tea and Crumpets
Sentiments - HOTP and Clare Curd (stamped with Versafine Antique Sepia)
Swirls - Sizzix die
Punch - MS Doily Lace
Flowers - Papermania and roses from stash

I'd also like to say a huge big thank you to everyone for their lovely words of support and also asking after Louis. I really appreciate every one.
