Red Carpet Studio Challenge - Use Flowers

Hi all!

This week we have another Card Challenge at Red Carpet Studio Challenge, and this week we are inspired by the movie "THE SECRET GARDEN"! We want to see flowers on your card.We dont mind whether your card is flower-shaped, of contains a image with flowers, just use your imagination!

For this challenge we are sponsored by Saturated Canary.
Krista is offering 2 digi images to the winner of this challenge, who doesn´t want that? Just click on the banner below to go to her shop, you will love it there!

As many of you know I ADORE Saturated Canary, and I ADORE using flowers on my card, so this wasn't a real challenge for me.
Krista from Saturated Canary generously sponsored one image to every DT-member, and I chose one that was a real challenge for me!! Here is my finished project.
I truly love how this turned out, I am very proud of my coloring and the flower piece.
Here is a close-up of my colored image.
I actually had a hard time coloring! While I was coloring I lost track of the shades, didn't know which fold was up or down, but after a bit of struggling I managed to color the folds correctly (at least, that is what i think, LOL) This Butterfly Princess is colored with my Copic Markers and I used the following.
Skin: E00, E11, E13 and R20 for blush.
Lips: R22
Hair: E53, E55, E57, E59
Dress: R20, R22, R24, R27, R29
Butterflies: BG10, BG11
Shades: W00, W0, W1
Here is the flowerpiece I created, I love the colors, they match the patterned paper almost perfectly! All flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts.
The papers I used are by My Minds Eye, and all edges are inked with Distress Ink Brushed Corduroy.
The ribbon I used was actually white, but I inked it with the same Distress Ink to make it match.
This might me a surprise right? You all thought it was standard square card, but I made a bookcard! I love making them for little gifts, and since this is a gift for one of my dear friends this worked really well!

These are the pic's from the inside, used the same patterned papers and Distress Ink to match everything. The place to write the message on is made with a Nestabilities die, and Distressed it while the paper was still in the die.

That was it for now, I hope you all like it!
So now, hurry and get in your crafty mood, and create a card with flowers!!!
