2 Sketches Ultimate Card Showdown

Here is my card for this week's sketch. I believe it meets all the criteria, particularly that it was created specifically for this challenge. I had fun making this card, although the handstitching was definitely time consuming. I will be giving it to my parents for their 40th anniversary.



Here is the inside:
