A card that's not really card shaped

I was asked to make a card for a Diamond Wedding anniversary, the request was for something vintage looking and a bit different.
I used the Tim Holtz big tag die cut to make the basic card, cutting it so the folded bit was within the shape so it was not cut, and made the basic tag shaped card. This is a nice big die and made a nice sized card.
The background was coloured using distress inks, with a mask and then over-stamped with text.  The image was stamped onto coated paper and them coloured in using Portfolio Water Soluble oil pastels, I do love these as they give really muted shades and blend together really well.
Metal numbers coloured with Inca Gold and pearl swirl were added to finish it off.
