Card for 3 challenges!!!

Friday Sketchers (Check out there website here)
High Hopes and Simon Says Challenges!!

So I am really really new to this so my cards look somewhat generic compared to all you talented ladies but I figure I better just go ahead and start creating. The more I make the better my cards will look after awhile...I hope!

For this card I used white cardstock and stamped a butterfly on it. Then I colored the butterfly with Martha Stewart blendable markers. I used a punch for the diamond on the sides.... I noticed I need some work on making those come out cleaner..oops!
Then I cut out a red circle to put on my patterned rectangle. On top of that I used an Imaginisce flower with a button and bow made out of hemp. At the bottom right I used golden brads.
