My First Ever Flower Pot Card...!! :)

Hi  Friends,
Today I am sharing with you all a flower pot card I have made... This is my first time making this paticular shape card ..I have seen so many different version's of flower pot cards over the net but never tried my hand at it but when I saw this time's IBS color challenge my first thought was these colors would so work for a  pot shaped card I just loved the elegance of these colors and the picture inspiration to go with it and here  is my interpretation of these colors in this shaped card ...Please have a look :) ...
                                                       
                                                             
  And here is how it looks when the tag is pulled apart from the base :
                                                           

I have selected a sand color for the base pot and punched out the two border's using MS border lace punch the flowers are punched out from Navy color cardstock and embossed to give the full bloom look then I have made the centre's of these flower by embossing the punch bunch hydra cluster flowers.. I have used the largest flower in this set ...The leaves are all die-cut using Cheery Lynn Olive branches die  in sage color cardstock ..The sentiment is a digital freebie ..And I have blinged up the butterfly using the micro mini gemstone's from Pie Lane ..Sticking them on the butterfly and making its trail really required a lot of patience these gem stones are soooo tiny ..But I just loved the end result ...Don't you ??..Oh and since I could just work with 3 colors on this card I wanted to jazz up this card so have added glitter glue on the flowers too ...It looks amazing in real life ..But I was not able to capture the essence in this picture....:(
                                   
                                                     Here's a look at the IBS Color inspiration :
