DANCIN' WITH THE FAIRIES IN THE LAND OF PURPLE AND SPICE...

GOOD EVENING EVERYONE..
Late this afternoon my hubby finally finished our front garden (he really did work super hard) and it looks absolutely magnificent..in fact it looks to be the best in the whole street..and I don't like to brag but it is! :)))
And since the garden is now completed,  I made this card as a little congratulations to him and me (because I love the colours)!  
OH!! And also for some challenges but we won't tell him about that.... Will we! (lol) 

For this card, I used my favourite colours of aqua, purple and brown with some tan, thrown in..also the shimmery flowers, I am proud to say, I made them after watching a video on to make them...sooo easy and I liked the results..I also used black and tan butterfly flock paper, embossed background paper, vellum, lace sprayed with cosmo pink and blue martini glimmer mist, lots of diamond stickles for highlights, of course my trusty copics for this super cute image, turquoise ribbon, aqua and purple rhinestones and "congratulations" sentiment from stampin' up...
Here's a close up of the flowers and card
I also used a lot of distressing on the edges of the card just to make it little more interesting...beside I'm really into the distress technique at the moment :)
Now,  I've got all that out of the way...let's get on with the fun part!!
The CHALLENGES and my card is for :
