Playing with Ribbon!!!

After a long time, I finally managed to make this card. This is for Yvonne,s Challenge and one thing I love about her challenge is that she inspires to learn a new technique and one then gets addicted to it. ( I was hooked to stamping after her challenge).
One thing about this card is that the center light pink blossom is a little imitation of a new wild orchid crafts flower. I loved that flower at the first sight but could not get hold of it. But that did not deter me and using my punch craft , I tried making one. The butterfly is covered with glass sequins. The background paper is CB embossed and distressed. And Now For the challenge--I had a hard time trying to get the loops right and after I completed the last loop, it all sprung back and then after two attempts, I finally used the hot glue gun. The dark blue ribbon is a gift from Yvonne and that thin silver lace flower string is bought from Bangkok by my sister. The pic is not very clear as it is taken in great hurry. This card also goes for the following challenges:
