Stampin' Up Patio Party Butterfly Warmest Wishes

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with a card I made a little while ago with Stampin' Up Butterfly stamps and inks, shrink plastic, Patio Party papers and cardstock and gems.
I started by making my butterfly embellishments. I used Stampin' Up stamps which I stamped with inks with colours which go with my choice of designer paper and cardstock. I cut some of the butterflies out with scissors and others with a punch I have that goes with the stamps. I shrank them all then put them in a heavy book until they flattened a little.
I cut a panel of white cardstock and arranged the butterflies until I was happy with the design. I then mounted this on cardstock. I stamped out a sentiment and matted this with the two colours of cardstock I had used on my butterflies. I then added this to one corner of the panel and then on the opposite corner I decorated with clear gems in a corner pattern detail. 
I covered my card with papers and then decorated the inside too, and added a die cut piece of white cardstock for the message-I chose a circle to go with the circle pattern on the paper behind it.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Home Decor Project-Beaded Curtain Tie Backs

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my favourite home decor make in a while. My father made me a four poster bed as he had some spare wood and I have always wanted one! So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains. 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…
