Anniversary Card for Mother & Father in law

Hi another gorgeous day here today ,my two daughters passed their theory tests this morning they managed to book it for the same time which worked out great !they tried to put on a sad face when they came through the door but it didn't work lol! and my eldest Michaela just treated herself to a car from a bonus she got at work ,so hopefully it will not be long till they pass the practical test .
Anyway on to my card ,the image is from polka doodles candy doodles collectors edition ,the paper is from papermania capsule collection dvd -rom ,the ornate shape i made from the shapes in the docraft digital designer ,then the cheery lynn fanciful flourish which i just received this morning i edged around the ornate shape i added tiny butterflies from a punch i got on ebay ,the flowers are a xcut punch ,i decoupaged the little birdies and used a promarker round the edge of the scallop of the card ,sentiment did also in the text of the digital designer software,the brads are from polka doodles .
Hope you are all enjoying the sun today and are having a lovely weekend .
