Another Happy 80th Birthday Card

Here's my second Happy 80th Birthday card of the week. (or maybe the week before by the time you get to see it!) Now you've seen both, I'm sure you'll agree this one's nicer... I love the colour, and the little LOTV Image (which was part of a set of digi freebies from a Crafty Magazine) and so was the already typed out sentiment on the right on the inside.
 The computer genterated sentiment is the same as the one in the post below, but just a bit different. My printer has not been working  for a while so when it printed these out in grey I was really happy, as I'd be really stuffed without a sentiment on the front!!
I made one of these open out both ways cards...Big card with front cut in half turned round and a smaller card fixed on what was the back on the larger card... I  still have no idea what their real name is. Tell me if you know! 
Like the card below I've also given these white flowers a Promarker make over, so they go with the papers. The papers I hadn't used in ages (years even!)  but I wanted something that matched and fitted the 8x8 larger card. They're by Papermania. 50 sheets, 8"x8" called Amethyst Infusion. Both the corner die cuts were hiding in some little drawers, so they just had to go on. At the bottom of one of those little drawers I found 'Just Purrfect' already stamped and embossed and then I found some patterned parchment paper and last, the LOTV image, a little girl with her cat. I've added a line of acetate to the front card just to help it stay up when open.
The lady that asked me to make this card for her mum, not only breeds dogs, she also has a small cattery too, so there had to be a kitten or a puppy on there somewhere! Inside I've used a Woodware 'paw' punch. I layered it all up, added the ribbon....not really in the right place. I usually have it under the top card. I've added a little bit of Stickles Glitter and some lilac gems too. That's about it I think! Later, I also hope to add this card to a few ...
