Make it Monday - Paper Piecing

Did you see Melissa Phillips GORGEOUS paper-pieced flower card at the Make It Monday challenge this time?  I could NOT not play after seeing it.......that girl could sell me the phone book - she is such an inspiration!  My version is quite a bit simpler, but still a CASE of her beautiful card:

Make It Monday #117

I thought this Hero Arts flower and the matching smaller version of it would work well for her paper-piecing technique.  I decided to use the papers from Graphic 45's Secret Garden Patterns & Solids because I could get all these in the same pattern, and the reverse of them was a solid, which worked for the smaller flower.  I centered my flower with a button, and added the PTI sentiment from Flower Fusion #12 and a peach Martha Stewart butterfly punch.  My background paper is from Memory Box.
