My Flowers arrived!

Woohoo!! Finally my flowers arrived from Wild Orchid Crafts, ok so they actually came quite quick, but I am just so impatient that I want things when I order them ... like immediately!!

Anyway onto todays card, I saw this fabulous creation from my lovely teamie ladybug Pami and I had to have that image!! so I hopped on over to Bugaboo and purchased it!! .... I then started working on a layout, at the minute I love layers ... and lots of them, not sure why as I love simple cards normally but this just had to be done!! I also had it in my head that I would use pins, and lots of flowers in various sizes (hence the very expensive order of flowers!) however it turns out I am just not clever enough to get a stunning floral arrangement like Dawny P!

The black flowers came from the lovely Melissa through a stash swap, and everything else came from my stash!! LOL ... the papers are from Ladybug Hayley over at Funky Farm Scrapbook Barn, the pins are from Ribbon Girl!  I glittered up the dress and used glossy accents on the hearts!

Then ... just to be different ... I did something that Ladybug Mary J would be proud of ... I decorated the inside!!! yay go me! (I promise it is straight in real life, but I was stupid and didn't hold the camera straight when taking this pic!)

Hope you like it!!
