Decoupage Pansies , from the heart of the garden

I've been commissioned to make this card for my Mum's hubby to give her, I know she will love it because there "her colours " as she puts it , matching the new colour scheme in her front room . I wounder does anyone else make cards to fit in with their or others home decor?
I've used "heart of the garden " cd rom by Joanna Sheen . I've decoupaged some of the pansies and distressed the card stock with a crafters companion sander. I've added some lilac ribbon and a few jose rose nail heads to add a finishing touch.

challenges entered :
cd Sunday : begining with D , my card is decoupaged and distressed
cupake inspirations : monochromatic lilac
Southern Girls challenge : floral  frenzy

Well enjoy the rest of the weekend , we are off to meet our friends at the local pub in about hour, G&T and some good company , lovely . I've had a very crafty couple of weeks , craft show and demo's yesterday , lots of new stuff to post so watch this space .
Happy Crafting.janex

Such a timeless and elegant design, and since it fits the colors of her front room she can have it on display there:)
