Card I made for PaperLovinGals challenge

I made this card for a fun challenge at    Paperlovingals.blogspot.com this past week.  I have been so busy with Blog Hops and Design Team posts I was afraid I would miss the deadline but it is today so I made it. 
For this challenge we were given the picture below to get our creativity flowing.  
I decided to use the texture idea and the strips.  
I started with this beautiful background paper that I had a scrap of and selected 4 scraps of matching cardstock.  The card is 5 x 7 and the strips are 1 1/2  x 4 1/2 .I then selected 4 different embossing folders, embossed and inked the edges.  Next I selected matching colored flowers and buttons and used Memory thread to tie.  I still felt like it needed something so wanted to add a butterfly.  Found this beautiful one in a K and Company embellishment bag I bought a while back.  It's printed on plastic and I think it looks really cool.  
The Bloom title also came from the same bag and is glued to a popdotted and ink tag.  For now I am leaving the inside empty so I  can decide later what occasion to use it for.   

Here is the inspirations picture
