A Lemon & Lime Pick 5 Thank you

The challenge of Day 283 at 365 cards was :
Have someone else pick 5 items from your stash to use on your card. Those are not the only items that you have to use, but they must be on your card.
I asked my kids to choose for me, and boy, that was a HUGE mistake... LOL. first, they were so thrilled to dig in my stash (now I have to clean up all the mass.. Okay, I did a lot of mass myself the past few days...), then they came up with this demands (oh yes, demands it was. I think Pam must have talked with them when I was a sleep):
patterned paper, but no flowers on it!
must be something glittered
absolutely no pink or purple! (this was the first demand, before they could even decide what ingerdints to choose)

did I say huge mistake?

so that what I came out with. yes, I cheated a little. the pp does have some flowers on it. I hid it with the big green flower and the ribbon (don't turn me in, please... LOL)

and it goes for the following challenges:

pick 5 - day 283 at 365 cards

color combo: lemon & lime - #35 colour create

new - #2 cards for men - the round "thanks" sticker is something new I got as a rak.
