Ribbons Galore Butterfly Easel Card

Good morning everyone, hope you are well :-) Here I am with a project that is a little bit different! The patterns on the butterfly are made entirely of ribbon :-)
For this project I used my Cricut to cut a large butterfly shape, then I affixed Ribbon all over the Butterfly then cut round it from behind with material scissors. Then I edged it with stickles to stop the ribbons fraying.
I attached this to a 6x6 easel card, and used Papermania Secret Garden papers as a background. I added some ribbon to the base, and matching wire mesh butterflies in each corner.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Hotshot Crafts: Die Cuts
Charisma Cards: No Flowers Allowed
