My card for Magnolia-licious Contest - RIGHT THROUGH MY HEART

I am just pulling myself up off the floor after hearing from Diana that I have won the contest on her MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS BLOG. Last March Diana gave us a challenge to make a card with the Magnoilia stamp 'Right Through My Heart' #375.
Diana has had a few contests and for one reason or another I wasn't able to participate. This time I was determined to do so.
I am ashamed to say in my excitement at this moment I can't remember the name of the type of card that I made - head hanging down.....

I wanted my card to tell a little story.
Here are the details:
Stamps used: Right Through My Heart # 374, Arrow Through My Heart # 639, Bride and Groom # 138
: all card stock is from Bazzil ~ vanilla, green, pink (2 shades)
: Cotton fabric from local quilt store is sewn ( my first time ) onto a piece of 5 x 5" card stock
: Main card is 6 x 6" ( 12" x 6" scored at 6" with my Scor-Pal )
: small card is 4 1/4" x 4" ( 12" by 4 1/4" scored at 4" and 8" with my Scor-Pal )
: grass is hand cut
: small flowers punched with MS Hydrangea Punch and have green seed beads glued inside each one
: ribbon came from Diana in a surprise gift package
: top card has magnetic closers as well as ribbon across top part to close right side
