Cute Card Thursday Challenge #81 and Dutch Dare Card Challenge #62

I have incorporated 2 challenges with the card I have just made.
One of the challenges, Challenge #81, over at Cute Card Thursday Challenge asked that I  use a Charm, as this week's challenge is "So Charming". You will see the butterfly charm I used dangling from a piece of delicate white ribbon. I was hoping to give the impression of the butterfly flitting from flower to flower.
Their next challenge will be set next Thursday, so I would imagine the closing date for this challenge would be the evening of Wednesday 14 October 2009

For the other challenge, Challenge #62,  over at Dutch Dare Card Challenges I was set a card recipe to follow. 
2 different colours of cardstock
2 different pieces of patterned paper
2 flowers
2 brads
2 gemstones/buttons
The 2 different colours of cardstock used were the white, which I stamped the image on, and the red, which I cut the flowers out of.
The 2 different pieces of patterned paper were cut diagonally and stuck  onto the card to use as a background.
The flowers are plain to see and I used the brads as a centre piece for the flowers.
The 2 gemstones were stuck on either end of the sentiment.
This challenge ends on the evening of Wednesday 22 October 2009.

I have to say I'm really pleased with how this card turned out. 
Thanks for looking!
