A Flowery Card

I sent my friend Jennie a book that I had read and she had expressed an interest in reading. Jennie being Jennie was not content to just accept the book as a gift, she sent me a pack of kraft card blanks and the most beautiful SU papers! I couldn't resist the urge any longer (I lasted a day!) and had to make a card with my new stash today! Another friend, also called Jenny, has recently made a card using a handmade flower embellishment which I absolutely love - it's here. So this is my first attempt at making my own flower using the brilliant tutorial on this site. There are lots of other flower tutorials on the site, it's well worth a look :-)

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges if I may:

I loved the papers Jennie gave me so much I decorated the inside of the card too...

Supplies:
Kraft card blank - given to me by the lovely Jennie
Papers - given to me by the lovely Jennie again!
Pearl brad - Quixotic Paperie
Sentiment - Craftwork Cards, inked around edge with Memento Bamboo Leaves inkpad
Tools - Bazzill Flourishes stitching template, Dovecraft paper piercer, DMC embroidery thread, Woodware leaf punch
