80th Birthday Card

My in laws are celebrating their 80th Birthdays a week apart, and I decided I would make them a combined Bookatrix card.

Hubby's step dad was a gun shearer before retiring, that's why I have made the tiny sheep and they had a massive flowering gum tree in the backyard of the family home (they have since sold the property and moved closer to their children) so that's the reason for the gum tree branches and flowers.
His mother loves her flower garden now that she is able to grow one so she got flowers and a decorative pin on her side of the card.

And here it is in its box

Oh wow! super duper work Baukje.
I love, love your Gum tree branches and flowers. Wonderful job and lovely and neat as always.
Love how you framed the camillia on the other side. Your inlaws will treasure this one.
