Die Cut Dreams Challenge #91

Hi everyone, hope you are having a good day. It's Monday and time for the next challenge at Die Cut Dreams and do we have a great one for you.

It is a recipe:-

3 Flowers,
3 Stamps and
a Bow

Here is my card and I hope you find some inspiration ...

The three stamps I have used are the Flower Fairy - Candytuft and the butterfly and border stamp from the same set. I have had these for some time - can't imagine why I haven't inked her up before. She has been coloured with watercolour crayons. The background papers are from the Flower Fairies CDRom Candytuft and Canterbury Bell. I have used copious amounts of crystal glitter!!!!
I didn't have the right colour of ribbon so I used a white satin ribbon coloured with a pink Promarker - best tip I have ever found as you can match any ribbon colour.

Here is a closeup of the flowers and butterflies.

Please check out my team mates for some more fabulous inspiration and I can't wait to see what you come up with.
