Secret Challenge

Oh what did i do lol . Over on The Craft Cupboard Show and Tell on facebook the lovely Jane set a mystery challenge ..
5 People were to volunteer to make something from what she sent and i put my hand up .. Silly me ..
Well what came was one of my worse nightmares i don't do green and very rarely do aperture ..
Here is what she sent
I forgot to take a before picture so have pinched this one lol

Oh what to do i thought ..
Then i thought penny slider .. well as you can see the aperture is huge so unless we are living in 1820 pennies wouldn't do ,, Then i thought about having a fairy sitting on the aperture and that didn't feel right so i walked away ....
And here is the finished card .. As you can see i got there in the end .
I used some green and cream background paper from my stash and glued it over the card
I then cut that down and made a mess so out came my trusty peel offs for the edges and round the aperture

Added some ribbon a double bow and flowers and bits from Duck Pond Crafts Blooms kit

Then i placed an insert inside and stamped my "sentiment of the moment" inside the aperture and added some gems and 3d butterflies ..
I do hope you like what i have done with this challenge as it was a REAL challenge for me
Any comments would be gratefully received x
