30th Anniversary card

In a word - NIGHTMARE! My first commission for a card and it is for a man (1st nightmare) and it has to have a motorbike on it (2nd nightmare!). I have spent the last week stressing about this and am still worried she won't like what I have done. Hmmmm.

This is the first thing I have made in a week (I tell a lie, I started a small canvas but abandoned it for now as it wasn't turning out as I wanted). The trouble with me (as I'm sure with a lot of crafters) is that I often think a lot of my work is crap! So I've had a few days off.
I had a short deadline for this card so had to get cracking. It's A5 size black cardstock with the front covered in some love themed 7Gypsies papers. I doodled a narrow frame on black card with white sakura pen and then cut it out with a craft knife and adhered to front of card. Cut out and layered up the decoupage motorbike and attached to card. Embossed chipboard numbers 30 with red embossing powder and cut out Happy th and anniversary from red bazzill bling using my cuttlebug. These were glued on to the card. I used a love embossing folder to emboss the words "all you need is love" on red bazzill bling and mounted that card on black and then white card and attached top left. Finishing touch was some little stick on pearls in the top left and bottom right corners as 30 years is pearl anniversary.
