Elegant Gatefold card with hat and flowers for challenges

Hi all, hope you are all well and have been enjoying the week. I bought this image from Craftsuprint, and hardly used it as it is meant to..but was rummaging around all my stuff and thought it would make the perfect card topper, doesn't always have to be hand I know some would shake their head at that thought, and some of you would agree, lol...
I had these papers and used the kraft card for the base, and added a bit of interest on the left flap , using the MS butterfly border punch. The flowers and everything else is from my stash, and I added lots of glitz, even though you can't really see it....the flowers on the left are meant to hold the card flap.
I think I will leave it sentiment free so it can be used for anything..
including Mothers Day...
