Flowers at Craft Rocket

Hello again everyone, it's time for a new monthly challenge at Craft Rocket.  Our theme this month is Flowers.

I made this card for a friend's 50th bithday,  The chart is from a magazine and was a real pain to stitch!  It has lots of fractionals and metallic thread both of which I hate.  I love the beads in the middle of the flowers though.

I finished it by fixing it over a piece of card as recommended in the magazine which is a technique I've not used before. It was a bit fiddly so I'm not sure I'd use this method again.

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:
