45th Anniversary Card L and P

This card is for my brother and his wife who have been married 45 years. It is 6" x 6" because, again, it grew and grew.
The card base is white, the beige is a linen type paper and the frame is from SVGCuts.com with the ribbon threaded through the little holes. The gorgeous picture is from CAJOLINE-SCRAP. She has the most gorgeous pictures and many freebies. The site is in French but can be translated.
The sentiment is computer generated and I distressed the edges with gold sparkly ink and used a dimensional to pop it up. The ribbon, flower and paper are from my stash of Dollar Store supplies. I used a strip of the picture printed onto plain paper and edged with a border punch from Fiskars and a wee bit of sparkle to add some life to the inside of the card. Sorry I didn't get a picture of the inside.
The envelope was way too big sideways so I just cut it straight down on the sides and glued them back together. I then added another part of the picture to the inside of the envelope for a little life and voila, there is my card.
Have a Blessed day.

Wow, how pretty in those soft pinks and the lacing idea is a great accent.
