Happy 50th Birthday Alison!

Here's another 50th birthday card, this time for my sister-in-law, Alison, who's birthday was last week, but I've been so busy that I've only just got round to blogging her card!
 I've used some of my new goodies from the SECC to make this card, including this gorgeous Imagination Crafts stamp, which I've coloured with Distress Markers and a water brush, and these stunning Lili of the Valley, Antebellum papers, which have to rank as one of my favourite ever paper packs, they are sooo beautiful.  Even the ribbon, pearls and gems are new, there's nothing like breaking out the new stash!  The only older stuff I've used is a couple of card blanks to make the easel, oval and scalloped oval Spellbinders, Walnut Stain Distress Ink for the edges of the papers, and some glitter number stickers.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Craft-Dee Bowz - Anything Goes with a Handmade Bow
Craft Your Passion - #187 - More than One Fold
Incy Wincy - Ribbon, Twine or Fibres
Lexi's Creations - #102 - Birthday Celebrations
Sweet Stampin' - Time for a Shaped Card
Pattie's Creations - #79 - Birthday
Penny's Paper-Crafty - #151 - Black or Bling - I chose bling (gems and pearls)
