Orange rose card

I've made this card for my friend who is anxiously awaiting an operation. The flower was made from orange MME paper, coloured on the underside with Distress ink, and cut with the Sizzix tattered florals die. I love the leaf trim , which was part of a pack I bought some time ago. I hope I can find more to replace it. I made a simple box from one sheet of A4 for it to go in as it was too deep to fit in to an envelope.
I'm entering this card in to the following challenge:
