Happy Birthday...80 years young

Hi all
Here is a birthday card and bag I have made for my friend...the brief for the card was...pink /green /not too fussy and some flowers ...so here is what I came up with ..the flowers are a digi that I had from cardmadfairy when I was on her DT and the papers are so old from my stash that I don't remember where they came from!!! The  buttons,ribbons and gems are from Meiflower crafts,The butterflies are made using a punch.The corner dies are from Marianne d. The flourishes are made using  memory box dies.The white bag blank is from papermania.The sentiment was computer made using open office .
