Docrafts Card Kit Swap meets the Secret Crafter

There's a new(ish) swap over on the Docrafts forum, where you make a card, then send the card (sealed in an envelope), along with an identical set of 'bits'n'pieces' that you used to make your card, to your partner, and they do the same. You then make a card with the 'bits' you're sent, open the card your partner made, and then compare. I took part for the first time this month, as I thought it sounded like fun, and this is the result:

As I've added some faux-stitching, I'm entering this card for this week's Secret Crafter Challenge.
The card on the right is the card my partner made with the same items - I think it's really interesting to see how people can use the same items and get really different end results!

And this is the card that I sent to her:

The papers are by K&Co ('Roam'), the image is Penny Black (from the 'Hugs' set), the flowers are from Poppicrafts, the sentiment is a Whiff of Joy stamp, and the raffia lace is from Hobbycraft.
