Parkstone Pink Flowers Friend Swap

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with another card to write my positive message swap for my friends on, that way its easier for them to keep safe, rather than just on a piece of paper :-)
I used a Stampin' Up flower stamp and ink, then I coloured shaded parts with copics. I die cut the cardstock with spellbinders dies, and did the same for the inside message. I used Papermania Parkstone pink papers and bows, with ribbon from American crafts. 
The inside for the message. 
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently. I started by doubling my tiger tail, and folding this over, then fixing the first ring with a crimp and covered this with the crimp cover. I then threaded m…
