Couple of quick cards

Made this card quickly tonight very similar to one I made for furrypig have added a strip of blue between the embossed lines and some gems to the butterfly. Have also dusted the flowers with blue chalk.
Over on MSE lots of the girls went to the NEC today so those of us left behind had a bit of a virtual cake party to which we bought lots of very fancy looking cakes and best of all they were all calorie free! lol anyway Dawnteabag set a little challenge for us to make a card with a cake on it here is my effort.
I have used a sheet of paper from forever friends for you pack. Its one of those sheets with the image already on it I never really know what to do with these? I used 3 sheets to create a decoupage I'm quite please with it as I have never made my own decoupaged picture before although I think the sentiment could do with being a bit bigger as the top of the card looks a bit bare. I addes so punched flowers over the top of the vase as the printed ones looked to flat and were to fiddly to cut out.
Heres a close up of the flowers
