Getting Sentimental

I've got some dear friends who will be celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary next month and thought this would make an ideal card to mark the occasion.

I started with an 8" x 8" octagon shape that I made using a scoring board. The backing paper and main sentiment are from Joanna Sheen's If Flowers Could Talk CD which contains the art work of Jayne Netley Mayhew and the poetry of Patience Strong. A beautiful CD that is useful for so many occasions. The leaves and butterflies are die cut.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
