Happy 50th Birthday

 It was a colleague's 50th birthday recently.  Well if a 50th birthday doesn't mean a nice posh card in a box what does?
 My colleague loves cats so I knew which CD of mine to go straight to.  I picked my Joanna Sheen Furry Friends CD (sadly no longer available on Joanna Sheen's website) and printed the toppers out a few times so I could decoupage and I used backing papers (the pink striped and the grey textured) from the CD.
To finish decorating the card I used the grey paper and cut out "50" and "today", ribbon, button, charm, twine, glass cat bead and gems.

I made up the box and decorated it on the outside with the few cat stamps I had.  Once I made up the box I stamped the same images onto tissue paper for the card to sit on in the box.

My colleague really appreciated all the time and effort I put into making her card.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
