Butterfly card

Here is a butterfly card I made following several themes from several challenges. I like it but I think I should have tucked the ribbon behind the brown card rather than on the inside of the card to make it look a bit better. I used a 5x5 card (I had major issues trying to find any 6x6 white or cream cards yesterday at my local craft shop, could find red and green but no white or cream so if anyone knows of a good place to get some please let me know!), brown cardstock, Henbury Lane paper, ribbon from Crafty Ribbons, butterfly from stash, gems from Papermania, spellbinders nestabilities.

I would like to enter it into the following challenges:
Sketch Saturday - Sketch 170
Flutter by Wednesday - Open challenge
Truly Scrumptious - Rocked up pink
Sweet Stampin' - Strawberry, chocolate and cream
Papertake weekly challenge - Dies to die for
Crafty Sentiments - Ribbons and bows
Hooked on craft - Things with wings
Card Makin Mamas - Pink
