50th birthday card

I've made this card for a few of us to sign, as we are taking our friend and neighbour out for her 50th birthday. I've used an 8"x8" Craftwork Cards card blank as the base. This is a great size for working with, and gives plenty of space for lots of names inside.
I've used DCWV Nana's Kitchen papers, one of my favourite Sizzlet dies for the leaves, a butterfly die,  retro flower punches and Craftwork Cards card candy. Some edges are inked with Distress ink to make them stand out better from the background. The '50' was cut on my Craft Robo.
 I am entering this card in to the following challenges:
Crafts and Me Challenges: punches
Crafty Creations  Challenge Blog: anything goes
Incy Wincy Designs: Mother's day/ girlie
My Mum's Craft Shop Challenges: dies
Papertake Weekly : punches
