Card for nephew

Hya friends.
I hope you aren't too caught up in this atrocious weather most of the UK and the USA is having!
Here in Macclesfield, we are what you could suppose, is 'lucky', in that all we have is loads of rain. 
The garden is saturated and it's more like a bog. (I'd love to have it paved over).
I feel for those down south and on the coast who are having tremendous problems with flooding.
OK, get on with it Viv!
It's my nephew's birthday tomorrow, so I made him this card.
 I have a pad of papers by Graphic 45 called 'Communique'
I've only used part of one sheet for this card. (It's double sided).
The sentiment is part of Clearly Besotted's  'Happy Birthday' set.
I added a strip of burgundy ribbon that I have had since Adam was a lad and a metal filigree corner.

I don't normally do much with inside of cards. I usually cut paper to size and stamp or insert a verse from the PC, but I liked the paper so much, I decided to come out of my comfort zone a tad.
The sentiment is a wooden stamp by Inkadinkado.

Is it me, or do you agree that this could work as a card in it's own right?
 I'd love your thoughts on that. 

Just a quick reminder, the All dressed Up challenge on Saturday, but there's still time to enter.
If you don't have an ADU image, no worries, there are some freebies available for you to play along with.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Great card - love the inside too! I don't do anything on the inside either, but it's a treat to do it now and then. Sure he will love it. Stay safe!

Yes indeed the inside is as awesome as the outside and could stand on it's own. You did a bang up job with this card and it will be well loved.

Great card Viv, I love the colours together and yes, the inside could be a whole card by itself :0) xx

I agree with the rest. The inside definitely would make a lovely card all by itself!
