Alcohol ink Flower Card

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with a card using one of the flowers I have been making out of drink cans as my focal point on my card. I made this first and then echoed the colours of it on inkessentials paper which I had embossed with a flower embossing folder. I then added a layer of glitter to this paper to make it really shimmer. Next I mounted it on white coredinations card. I covered my base with Lucy Cromwell paper which complimented the mint green in my flower and then added American Crafts Polka dot ribbon to finish.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
