Comparing flowers

Inspired by In The Pink's latest challenge - Buttons and Bows (and entered into that challenge).  It's very appropriate for a few others so I've also entered it into Fantasy Stampers - Hearts & Flowers challenge, The Ribbon Girl challenge - Add Ribbons and Addicted to Stamps - Pastel (Soft) Colours
 
My initial thoughts were colour something pink!  No problem favourite colur :)  Then I had to think about it for a while.  I'm not one for using buttons on my cards and have only just learned how to tie a half decent bow.  The final result was this.....
 
 
 
The stamp used was Lili of the Valley's - Best Friends.  I've coloured the image with ProMarkers.
 
The backing paper is a pink one from Lili of the Valley and NitWit Collections - Solids - Always and Forever.  Over the top of this I've layered a grey paper from DoCrafts Papermania Capsule Paper Pack - Bexley Black.  Then more pink from Alway and Forever.  Then a different pink from First Impressions - Rose Garden.
 
I've added some grey/silver ribbon with a hand tied bow.  A paper heart doilie, some heart buttons in pearlised whire and silver and some pink flower gems.
 
I've also made a tag edged in pink and topped it off with some pink roses from Wild Orchid Crafts and some cream ribbon.
 
Nearly the weekend - have a good day x
