Floral wedding anniversary card.

I was asked by a friend in work to make a card for her Aunt and Uncle's 60th wedding anniversary. When I asked her if there was anything they particularly liked I was told yellow or lemon roses, that they were 'something high up in church' and they were very special people - no pressure there then LOL!
I searched through my CDs and found the perfect backing paper on a Joanna Sheen CD called 'The Cardmaker's Year'. I also found a design I liked for the card base in a craft magazine. I used Kraft card for the base and 2 BPs - the JS one mentioned above and a textured effect one on a really old JS CD called 'Secret Garden'. I searched through my dies and found a Tattered Lace rose die and sentiments dies, a church die from Marianne Designs, some flower and leaf dies from Sue Wilson and number dies from Xcut. I also decorated the back with the same papers and printed a verse I found on the internet. The card is tied closed with 2 coordinating ribbons from American Crafts (a bargain buy from TK Maxx).
I've taken several photos as the card is awkward to photograph. The first photo is of the card opened.

The card closed and the 2 ribbons closed.

I even decorated inside the envelope.

My friend was thrilled with the card and is confident her aunt and uncle will love it.
I'm entering the card into the following challenges:
CD Sunday Challenge - the theme is Floral Frenzy,
Cute Card Thursday  - the theme is Floral Delight,
Miriam's Crafting Blog - the theme is Romance,
Crafting for the Craic - the theme is Birthday or Anniversary.
