Roses and Ribbon

A fresh floral card today, made with die cuts and stencils, in my favourite colour combo of pink and green.
 I started by creating the circular focal element, using Distress Inks in Twisted Citron and Picked Raspberry, and a couple of Imagination Crafts stencils.  Once the ink was down, I flicked water at it for a soft splotchy effect, once this was dry I stamped my sentiment with a stamp from a Buzz Craft set.
I covered my card blank with bright pink card, stuck my stenciled piece to this, then made a panel from white card, die cut a circle from the centre, added a ribbon border, and adhered this to the card with foam tape for dimension.
The roses and butterfly were made with my Xcut Rose Flourish die set, and I finished my card with some white pearls.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Allsorts - #359 - Ribbons and Roses
Fussy and Fancy - #161 - Pink and Green
Cut it Up - #94 - Spring Flowers
Crafty Boots - Use a Sentiment
