Happy 80 th birthday

Hi all
I have made this card for a was a rush order ...she rang yesterday morning and needed it for the same it was a challenge to get it done in an
the brief was white/silver and a this is what i came up with ,i used a darice embossing folder to pretty up  the main card blank,the silver mirri was cut with a SU punch,the sentiment is a peel off ..not keen on peel offs but needs must...and my silver wow powder is lost somewhere in my craft room.....
The flower is a tonic studio oriental lilly die.the embossed panel behind the lilly is actually a xmas one from SU.the corners are peel offs too.
The flower centre is a daimante buckle topped with a large pearl,The,pearls ,buckle ,butterfly and ribbons are from meiflower crafts
