Silver Pansies and Petunias

Been playing again with some Paper Tole Die Cut sheets.  This sheet was made up of three flower arrangements...all are grey tonings with silver highlights pretty.
I had thought to add a little colour to the flowers but thought that might ruin the whole effect. 
So decided to add a glimpse of colour to the card.  I have used the lovely Stampin Up Orchid Opulence card as the background colour.  Started with Bazzill Card (Raven) for my base card.  Found the lovely patterned paper in my is actually embossed.  Dug out my scalloped edge circle and plain circle Spelldinders to cut the background for the Pansy Die Cut Paper Tole.

Here is a side on view so you can see the layers.  I went around the edge of each layer with my embossing tool on the back to make the petals curl under a little.

I would like to enter this card into these challenges:

Another flower from the sheet.  I see them as Petunias but I think they are listed as Crocus.
They are pretty all the same.
I started with Stampin Up Basic Grey card as my base card.  Then a layer of silver Jac paper.  Next I ran Stampin Up Pink Pirouette through my Swiss Dots folder.  Added two little clear glitter butterflies stickers.  Attached this beautiful lace that I bought from Scrap Therapy.  

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge:
