Wedding flowers

Hi again, I've just finished this card and thought I'd better post it before I get stuck into some housework. The weekend goes so quickly!

The flowers have a layer painted with twinkling H2Os. The colour was way too bright to use on
it's own so I softened it with a vellum layer.

I'm linking up to the challenge at Inspirational where it's a purple theme
as well as a celebration of Pia's wedding next week. Congrats Pia!

It's also a wedding theme at Just Add Ink.

At Cuttlebug Mania it's a ribbon theme, as well as using a manual machine. I used my cuttlebug to diecut the Mediterranean Lace rectangle frame. 
I diecut it twice and layered them together for extra dimension. The glue was nearly dry by the time I got around all the pieces lol!

The ribbon is a couple of leftover pieces I had from another project so I'm also visiting the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop
You only need 1 snippet or scrap to join in the fun.

At Stamping Sensations it's a flower power theme and you must use a stamp.
I've used SU flower shop and Annabelle Stamp's sentiment stamps.
