40th wedding anniversary gift

Today we are attending a 40th wedding anniversary celebration for friends of my parents.  I wanted to make a special gift, and since the only thing I know how to make are cards, well, that's what I made!

Here's the outside, using Fifth Avenue Floral from SU!. 

I used 3 different yellows to create the rose.  I used my new SU! border punch, and a swirl punch for the sides of the circle.  I used a scallop circle and regular classic circle nesties.  And the floral branch embossing folder for the white panel.  To finish the look, I put brads in the corners.
Here's a close up shot of the rose:

and here's the inside!
I used a Top Note die and the same swirl punch.

I made 10 cards to complete the gift.

All right, off to do some chores before church.  :(
