Fabulous at 40 !!!

Just made this card for my friend who's 40! It took me ages, whoa! Don't know why but I seemed to have been on with this for a while! Out of interest, how long does it take you to do a card? The sketch is from Mumur at Friday Sketchers, it's a great sketch, a bit more complicated than I usually do! Probably why it took me so long?! The image is coloured with shimmer paints, the papers are printed from a CD, Pink Petticoat (I haven't used these for a while). I've added the ribbon, buttons and gems for bling! Also used Cuttlebug embossing folders, sentiment was printed on laptop! I'm not sur if it's missing something on the left side, but haven't added anything as couldn't decide!

Thanks for looking xx
