Sweet Smelling Flowers - Pick of the Bunch

Hello all you good people and welcome to Tuesday... I had an eventful day yesterday as my washing machine decided it had had enough and washed its last load before giving up the ghost.    All joking aside it was quite scary as smoke was coming out of it!! with a strong smell of something burning.  I dread to think what could have happened if I hadn't of been at home.  So I was washing machine shopping and have a new one arriving on Friday and boy will it have some work to do :0)
Anyway, onto my card for 
and the theme this week is 
so that means lots and lots of flowers.

I decided to go all girlie with this one, I'm so pleased with the way it turned out and I got to use some of the stash I brought at Doncaster craft show.

This has to be one of my favourite Tilda's and I have teamed her up with a few Molly bloom background stamps.

Copic Colours 
Tilda - R85, 83, 81 - Y00, YR30 - Shoes E44, 43, 42, 41

Grass & Flowers
G99, 94, 85, 82 - B01, 000, BG10

These organza roses are just heavenly and come in 1 meter lengths.  I have added the lush German glass glitter to the edges and boy does it make a difference! The little metal flowers are some of crafting goodies that I got at the show.
