Birthday card for MIL

It's a card I make for my mother-in-law's birthday.
The middle pic is embroidered with ribbons. I used ink pad to brush the "grass" frame to make it brighter. The sentiment is embellished with microbeaded shaker. The butterfly is also beaded.

With this card I took part in three challenges:
Laura's Sketch 57 by "2 Sketches 4 You"
Colour Throwdown 103: Certainly celery, Ridding Hood Red and River Rock. (well, not exactly, but I tried my best!)
Текст в скрапбукинге - студия Елена.

Later I understood that the color choice wasn't very satisfying (maybe I was wrong when I brushed the edges that bright), so I changed the color of the card. Luckily the grass-window was cut by my CraftRobo and creating another one wasn't a problem =)

So, there's a close-up of the embroidered gladiolii:

I'ts the first time ever I embroidered with ribbons on the canvas.
The whole embroidery:

The text below in the acetate-covered window with microbeads' shaker inside of it:

Added a microbeaded butterfly to support the shaker:

And the inside of the card:

Pop-up sentiment saying "Happy birthday".
