Wild English Flowers

I made this card at the request of a neighbour.  She wanted to send a card to her elderly Father who lives in Australia with wild English flowers on it, well that was a challenge in itself but fortunately Joanna Sheen came to the rescue with her Jayne Netley Mayhew Collection Part 2.  My neighbour wanted a decoupage card but unfortunately this image was not in the decoupage section so I printed it several times and created the decoupage myself.  The backing paper is also from the CD and is layered onto dark green card as is the image.

I printed an insert from the CD and layered that onto the same dark green card stock to decorate the inside of the card.

As the card is for an elderly gentleman I just added some card candy as an embellishment.

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

I did it Creations Challenge 84 - Flowers
Glitter Geeks Week 26 - Decoupage
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes

Thank you for looking.
