Special 50th Birthday card from bibs and bobs

Morning all

Well its raining again here and has been all night.
I do hope everyone is safe. 

First a big thank you to all my NEW followers and to Marianne for posting
on Facebook. 

I have been wondering what to show you today.

Yesterday I was playing with Card-io stamps 
thanks for my winning at The Craft Barn

Really pleased with the stamps.
So here is my card

I used scrap card and my old Memento inks to make the background 
Mounted onto 2 shades of pink card "Scraps"

Made it for a Special Birthday 50th. 

Added a sentiment from Cardwork Cards, inked around edge

 made die-cut hearts painted with distress inks
 and then

 die-cut words 50 To Day out of a scrap of pink card.

 finally added to white card blank after using distress inks to colour pink.

I would like to enter it for the following
