Another 50th Card

Hi all
Can you believe its been a year since I started my blog !!! Where does the time go?
I made this card for a very dear friend of  mine who will be 50 on the 14th September. She will be celebrating in Sicily on her special day.

 I started by embossing a piece of white card with CE star swirls folder, which I then gently wiped CS Pearl Lustre gilding polish over the top. I hope you can pick this out in the pics.
I cut two strips from an old SB boarder die the Vintage lace Accents, and added to the ends and completed with pearl PVA.
I used the spearmint foundations card along with the white a cut them out with SW Noble dies the Ornate Pierced design.
 The flowers I made with Spellbinders cinch and go flowers. I inked through the die with CS frosty aqua colour cloud from PM. I added some CS Iced Snow to the petals, and popped a pearl dot in the centre  with the CS glue that matches the Colour Cloud.

I have entered this card in the following challenges:
