Try a bit of paper piecing

Only me again.  Second post for today but last one before I retire to my bed.
At christmas my sister gave me a list of cards that she has commissioned me to make for her throughout the year.  This is the first of those cards.
I decided to have a go at some paper piecing.  The stamp image I have used has been in my stash for months.  I am afraid I have lost the insert so can't tell you who it is by.  I stamped the image onto white card and then used the backing papers to stamp on and cut out the pieces.  Namely, the flower heads and the leaves.
The finishing touches were the punched butterfly (love this punch), vintage ribbon and gems.  I also used the same stamp set to make some smaller flower heads as embellishments in the top corner.
Another photo of the inside of the card.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Sunday Sketch and Stamp - #88
Allsorts - #136 paper piecing
CES Challenges - #67 anything goes
Simon Says Stamp - spots and/or stripes
Moving Along With The Times - #120 spots and/or stripes
