70th Birthday Card

This is my DT post for the challenge over at

I have cut the book elements using a Tattered Lace set. I foiled two layers with my Gemini Foil Press. I shaped the layers around a rolling pin before adding them to my card using 3D foam pads then I added the bookmark down the centre. I foiled the frames using a Stamp "N" Cut die. I foiled the numbers with a Tonic Numbers die. I printed a personalised sentiment and placed it behind the frame before attaching it to my card. I added a plain background behind the other frame and then the foiled numbers. I made the flowers using a Die'sire quilling die. I have foiled the leaves and other elements on die to add to the flowers. I attached these to the bookmark using hot glue. I completed my card with ribbon at the top of the bookmark.
