friend's birthday card

here is a card that  made for my friend, who likes vintage quirky things. i think it is called a tri shutter card. it looks nothing like i intended when i sat down to make it. i already had a white base made but decided to change to green card, and themed it around her pressie.

green card- paper mill
pink lacy paper (outside)- forever friends pink parfait
pink/ green paper- my minds eye (free with magazine)
white card- embossed with swiss dots
owl image- papermania, stamped in pink, with pink gem added to the flower. layered on bazil green (shiny) and bazil pink card.
greeting- from a swap but i think craftwork cards.
flower- 2 promarkered white prima flowers, green card candy and heart shaped gem.

i'd like to enter it into the following challenges
lexi's creations- emboss it
a pocket full of posies- winged things (owl)
stamping for the weekend-anything goes
ces challenges- anything goes

thanks for looking x
