Warm thoughts butterfly card

Hello lovely friends, I hope your all enjoying your weekend. I cant believe we are in September already!

I have made this card for a couple of challenges:
totally gorjuss challenge 199 texture

Okay so there is a bunch of bits I have used on this card.
The shapes from silhouette are:
3d rolled spiral flower by Lori Whitlock
3d rolled spiral flower by Lori Whitlock
rolled rose by Silhouette
echo park butterfly by Echo Park
flower papers by Digital Pink Ink
Extra products:
Paper smooches stamp
Marianne rolled flower die English rose and leaf die
versamark ink
Black thread
white thread
Nellie snellen doily
handmade rag flower with a button
prima flowers
Textured mesh (under the doily)
This card took a long time to make as I got extremely carried away with my hand stitching and flowers he he.
I wanted to make a card that would suit different occasions get well/sympathy, as I never seem to have a card on hand when needed. Well I probably do but most of my cards seems to hide when I need them, or maybe I just need to get more organised :)  
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog, I really appreciate it. I hope you have a fantastic week.
