How to: have a pocket full of flowers

I was asked to make a card for somebody's Mother in Law, and the only wish was that the card should be mostly orange and green. I decided to make a pocket card with some flowers exploding from the inside. Here's what I made:
I used the papers I bought at the beginning of the year, they are so pretty and vintage, but I had no idea for them. Here they suited perfectly. The flowers are made from ELLE magazine ads using the Sizzix Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die. I also added some ornaments, by Sizzix too.
The ribbon is dismantled from a bouquet (as well as the green georgette material) and the sentiment says 'Best wishes'. It's been written by me, 'cos it's a 'handmade card' at last! LOL
The card is for the following challenges: challenge 27 (no post title)
