Making ideas into reality

Sometimes I have ideas for flowers floating around in my head for days...or even weeks before I actually sit down to try it. It's a nice when it turns out pretty close to how I saw it in my head. On this flower I used some stringy yarn, and a glass bead in the center. After I made the flower....now what? All I know is that I want it to be the focal point of my card.
I used "core'dinations" color core cardstock. It's black on one side & yellow on the other side. I ran it through the cuttlebug, using an embossing folder,then sanded lightly for the yellow to come through. I added some crochet trim that just happened to match the flower perfectly, and a strip I cut from Basic Grey's Urban Prairie paper. It still needed something...so I added the pink ribbon & bow to make it complete.
