Mixed Media Card - Flower Burst

Hi all,
Sharing a quick super shabby chic card that I made for a dear friend today. One of my first tries in mixed media using very few basic supplies. Here is the card first!

FOr the base I have taken a pearly CS with intricate pattern on it. I mounted a kraft CS offset diagonally on it after a bit of distressign and tearing the edges to give a vintagy work look. I brushed the edge with chalk inks. Next I cut out another edge piece of kraft CS and gave it a torn look.

On a white CS, I blended mustard seed, picked raspberry DIs and sadded homemade textture paste very slightly on the edges and base for texture (I was not sure how it would stay so used cautiously). Added random stamping of handmade hexagon stamps.

Next I took a birdcage mdf and blotched it using silver paints to give a old rusty look.
Mounted the mdf onto the CS and added a variety of roses and flowers, feathers and beads. Added this to the Kraft CS base and embellished the Kraft corner piece on top.

For the inside I just added couple of layered diecuts, one is a tag die cut and other one is a scalloped circle. The sentiment is going to be handwritten so it is not covered in the photographs.

Entering it to the below challenges.
