Happy birthday Hyacinth

This is a commissioned card for a friend to send to her mother ... her name, of course, is Hyacinth, so, obviously I was asked to incorporate that flower into the card.  I used a free download digital image, printed, coloured with spectrum noir pens and cut with a todo decorative oval die, using a smaller one to cut the sentiment which I had printed from computer, edging both with a spectrum pen. The background paper is an unknown piece on to which I added the ribbon with blingy sequins from Poundland and the lovely lilac lace from The Range, with some 3D butterflies with acetate wings and rhinestones here and there. I gave the card to my friend this morning and she was thrilled with it and knows that her mother will love it.

    The theme for our challenge at Pattie's Creations is Anything that Flys and your image does not qualify. I see butterflys but you don't mention that they are a digital or stamped image.
