Poppy Cubes

Afternoon All
I've been experimenting again. I saw some of these lovely cube cards on Pintrest, and just had to have a go, and I must admit I'm quite pleased with the outcome. I also love the fact that they go flat to fit in an envelope.
The base card was gumball green 12" x 12", then the image is Pleasant Poppies (another of my favourites), which I have stamped, coloured the stems, embossed with a texture plate from my stash, before paper piecing the flower heads on. The image was then divided into squares before sticking to the cubes. The butterfly is from the Papillon Potpourri set and has been stamped onto the same red card as the flowers, and has been gold embossed.
I'd love to know what you all think.
I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges;
Paper Pretties - try a new technique (new card style)
Cuttlebug Mania - let's feel it
Party Time Tuesdays - anything goes
Crafting From The Heart - anything goes/use flowers
Eureka Stamps - add a butterfly
The Crazy Challenge - red and white
Anyone For Anya - odd card
Great Impressions - floral images
Thanks for popping by, and I'll be back soon 
Hugs Sharon xx
