Forever friends with flower

Hi everyone, I've been busy making a couple of cards for a friend so I can't show you those yet but here's one I made earlier...
 I coloured it with promarkers, I wanted to try out my new glasses as soon as I got them home! I'm pleased to say they're brilliant, I can see what I'm colouring! All the backing papers are from my scraps drawer. The base card is a sort of goldie coloured pearlescent card. I've used a Martha Stewart corner punch to add some interest to the brown panel and added some green and some black gems with my heat setter. The ribbon is from my stash and must have come from some packaging at some point. I've made a flower using a large paper flower, which used to be light green before I promarkered it, and a red fabric flower, topped with a button. I've added some green beads to two black topped pins instead of adding leaves. The butterfly is cut from a neutral sheet of vellum. Here's a few more piccies...


I would like to enter this for the following:-

Happy crafting
