75th Birthday

Hmmm, not happy with this card! I don't even know why really, it just doesn't look quite right - it was one of those cards that seemed to take forever to come together and in the end I just had to finish it! It's for an order, and the customer wanted a fairly long message on the front so I thought an easel card would work best, but I think I'd probably be happier with the card without the easel bit.

I've used a lovely little Coco Bear image from Digistamp Boutique, coloured with promarkers. The plain circle was cut with nesties and the scalloped circle is a nellie snellen frame die. Papers are K&Co, with DCWV and coredinations cardstock. The fancy corner is a sizzix die, sentiment is computer generated and cut out with another nellie snellen die. I've used more of my bargain lace, roses from Wild Orchid Crafts, pearls from my stash and the MS doily lace border punch for the bottom edge of the easel.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
