Center Step Card...a First For Me

I have been seeing a lot of the center step cards recently and there is a challenge for making one at Crazy 4 Challenges. One of the best tutorials for this card that I have seen is at the Home of Speedy TV by Patty whose video is here. I decided to make this one for several challenges listed below. Should have done side view photo so that you could see better. Oh well!!
Supplies:
Stamps: Flourishes "Crocus" from "A Year in Flowers" and Annabelle Sentiment from "Floral Silhouettes"
Copics,  Memento Tuxedo Black
Papers: GKD Ivory CS, Textured Green CS from stash, Bazzill Purple
Punches: Martha Stewart Double Loops
              EK Success Corner punch
Bling: Green Pearls and  large Green Gemstones.

Challenges:

Flourishes Timeless Tuesday: Make a card with the word FRIEND.
