Never Ending Card for a 50th Birthday

This one was a customer order, this customer just loves my never ending cards, especially for special birthdays with a zero on the end!  I didn't have long to make this, she needed it very quickly, so I let the beautiful papers do the talking and kept the embellishments fairly minimal.
 The stunning papers are a new SECC purchase, they're Lili of the Valley, Beach Bliss, perfect for the request for shades of blue.  The fancy label that I stuck the glittered number stickers onto is a new Spellbinders die, and the bunting was made with a new Joy die too, I'm really enjoying playing with my new goodies.  The stamps I've used are as old as the hills, they're and ancient SeeDees set, apart from the "best wishes", stamp which is from the Papermania Vintage Notes range.  The colouring medium, however, is new to me, I've used Distress Markers from the limited edition set, with a water brush.  A few paper flowers and shimmer dots and that's my perpetual card done.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Creative Knockouts - #9 - Pennants and Banners
LEJ - #77 - Anything Goes
ABC - #51 - What's Old is New Again
