Pressed Flower Thank You

This card was made for a friend who does a lot with pressed flowers.  This pressed flower printed paper (HOTP) isn't nearly as nice as the real thing, but I thought she might appreciate the thought at least!  

BACKGROUND: I didn't have much of the printed paper left & wanted a bit for the inside as well, so I ended up with a strip that was perhaps 2" wide on the front of the card.  I found some old-fashioned lace that I thought went well and added along the border (for the inside as well - see below).

FOCAL: Focal was stamped on a die cut piece using a stamp from JustRite's Grand Sentiments.  I used the same ink to ink around the edge of the die cut and to ink the entire area of the die cut I used for a mat (dies from HOTP set called 6 layered labels & 2 swirls).  Because I ended up with some stray ink when I stamped the greeting, I added a little butterfly sticker to hide the mess.

INSIDE: For the inside, I had a narrower border done in a similar way as on the front - and added a larger butterfly sticker from my stash:
