Pretty flowers

This is really sad - I've used the last piece of this backing paper I love so much, the sort you have to just look at and admire and can't bear to use! I can't replace it as I've had it years and can't remember where it came from! I did manage to get four cards out of it as it was a 12" x 12" sheet. It's going out on a high as I've used it with a gorgeous image from the fabulous Meljen Designs.


For this card I have used:

6" x 6" card base
Image from Meljen Designs coloured with Promarkers
Flowered DP - unknown
Pink spotted paper - Zoe Pearn So Sweet collection
Blue card for mats from stash
Circles cut with Nesties
Martha Stewart Doily Lace edge punch
Blue ribbon from QVC
Buttons from stash

I'd like to enter it into the following challenges:

Meljen's Design Challenge #7 - Flowers and Blooms
Catch the Bug Flower Power
Totally Gorjuss Challenge #30 - Round and round
Creative Inspirations Challenge #34 - Punches or Die Cuts
