Flowers with a Sentiment

 I saw this style of card on a friend's blog and thought I can do this, well after a quite a few tries I did. 

The flowers and leaves are from Dee's die cuts, colored with Copics, Glossy Accents and glitter added, mounted to a Spellbinders oval.  The front opening of the card is also done with a Spellbinders die, embossed with Cuttlebug, Memory Box are the other dies, the little butterflies are from an EK Success punch, sentiment is from Our Craft Lounge and used for a closure for the card.

Challenges: 
Outlawz - Use a Sentiment/The Embossable
613 Create Ave - Anything Goes/Twist Candy
TTPH - Creativity Strikes
Digi Sketch Challenge - Floral Challenge
