A re-jig of an old card

I made a similar card for my lovely mother-in-law for her birthday last year but I do love the colours of these Ella Blue papers and also the vintagy feel of this image.  Challenge 28 over on the Craft Your Days Away blog is Hand-Made Flowers.  I couldn't resist! The image is a stamp from Clarity Stamps and is one of my all-time favourites. I've die cut the stamp with Spellbinders Labels Four and mounted that onto paper from Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby pad.  I used the Spellbinders Rose Creation dies to cut the flowers and leaves from the same Tim Holtz paper stack.  The organza frilly edge ribbon is from Create and Craft TV.  Another favourite Marianne die was used for the flourish.

I would like to enter this card into the following:
