Here is my take on the challenge. 

Hello card

I have used  Helena Royal Menagerie Prima Flowers. I love the different pink hues on the flowers and the complementary green coloured leaves. I totally wanted to make a shabby chic layered card. So I rummaged through my pattern paper stash and picked few pattern papers to go with the flowers. I honestly don't know the brand of the pattern papers. I trimmed one pattern paper to the size of the card front, roughed the edges with the scissors, another pattern paper die cut using MFT's Wonky Stitched rectangle die, again roughed the edges. I layered glued them. The frame is from Simon Says Stamp called Woodland Rectangular frame die cut using pattern paper. I then added leaves die cuts from green cardstock and Simon Says Stamp Clustered Leaves die. Then clustered and glued the Prima flowers and leaves. 

Hello card #1

To add more texture and interest, I added pink glitter on the flowers and Woodland Seed Beed from Pretty Pink Posh. I also added liquid pearls and twine bow. The sentiment is Painted Hello from Simon Says Stamp die cut a few in black cardstock. They are stacked and glued before I adhered them on the card. I then glued the finished panel on Simon Says Stamp white card base. Here are some closeups of the card.
