Commissioned Birthday Card

I was asked to make a birthday card for a customer.  The image and backing papers are from Joanna Sheen's Times Gone By CD.  I have just done some simple matting and layering.  The papers and topped have been distressed with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress ink.  The card is finished off with some ribbon I've had for ages (I don't very often use wide ribbon.  I won this about 2-3 years ago and thought it was about time it made its way to a card), tag, sentiment off the computer, personalised inside and card candy.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Inspire me Friday - Anything goes
Joanna Sheen Monthly Challenge - Celebration
Delightful Sketches - Distressing/vintage
Card Making Mamas - Something old (wide ribbon and tag)
Craft Your Days Away - Distressing
Mark's Finest Papers - Birthday card
The Crazy Challenge - Vintage
