Side Step Card with Homemade Flower

I had some time to myself so I decided to try something I had not done before.  I had this pattern for a side step card and these homemade flowers so I thought I would make something with them. 

I used a piece of double sided cardstock from American Crafts that I have had for well over a year.  I used Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles for the die cuts.  The image, Hibiscus 001,  is from DigiStamps4Joy.  I colored the image with Copic Markers.  For the handmade flower, I used some pieces from my scrap pile.  The brad is old, also from my stash.  The sentiment came from the dollar bin at Michaels. 
I am entering this in the following challenges: - Letter B (birthday card) - handmade embellishments (flower)
