Hand Sewn Card

Something a bit different for me today - a card with some hand sewing on. I have made one other card similar to this one (which can be found here: https://lillys-craftcorner.blogspot.co.uk/2017/11/thank-you.html) but apart from that it's a very different style of card to my usual.

The butterfly die is one of the free dies that came with my Gemini die cutting machine, and I shaped the wings for a bit of dimension. The flower is cut using Heartfelt Creations vintage florets dies, with the lower layer cut from vellum and the top layer cut from pearly paper with some ink added to the edges. The leaves are cut using Sue Wilson's olive branch dies (another of my favourite dies - I turn to these time and time again!). Mats of silver and green core'dinations were added to the pink panel, with some Tonic Nuvo drops in the corners of the card to finish it off. The finished card is 6"x6".

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
