My first attempt at a tent card

I keep seeing tent cards on blogs so thought I would have a go at one, this is my first attempt, well I say my first but thats actually sat in the bin so I suppose really this is my second one lol. I have used 2 6x6 squares of bazill, one of which I have covered with Basic Grey paper and cut an oval aperture with my nesties. 

This is the side on view so you can see how the card stands up I have used ribbon to tie the tops together.

I've used my princess Tilda stamp again and coloured her with promarkers and added some stickles to her crown, gloves and shoes. She is attached to the card with a gold jump ring.

The flowers are cut from 2 shades of pink bazill and the basic grey paper, each one is joined together with a brad and I used a cocktail stick to curl the petals. On the bottom flower I have attached a charm and a few beads to the brad using an eye pin. The butterflies are punched from pink vellum with a little stickles and some tiny gems for decoration.
Finally I haven't added a sentiment to the front of the card as I thought it was busy enough so have used the oval that was cut out of the front to put a sentiment on the back and decorated this with a couple more flowers and a butterfly. 
I would like to enter this in the following challenges:
Simon Says Challenge - A tent card with charms
