Just a small bouquet

Hello lovely people, today being Friday is the new challenge at Fussy & Fancy Fridays.  It's my teams turn this time with a theme of Flowers.

I suppose I could have used one of my images for this BUT it gave me a perfect excuse for playing with al my beautiful flower embellies :D

This is a close up of the bouquet, you can see a combination of paper and fabric flowers making up this floral display.  The flowers were bought from the Ribbon Girl, Noor Design and Wild Orchid Crafts.
The teal ribbon I've had in my stash for ages and is from Santoro.  I tied a very messy double bow (hee hee) you can't see how bad it was because its disguised by the flowers.  I really need to get something to help me with these or learn how to do them properly by hand!

You can also see by the picture above I've used some pearl gems an doodled a border.

This is a shot from the side so you can see the 3D effect of the flowers.
Behind the flowers you can see some laser cut woodchip frames.  I got these from Scrap and Craft, they have some beautiful ones in stock at the moment.

And finally my distressed design papers are from Lemoncraft.

Hope you like my inspiration for today and we see you at the challenge

This is beautiful! I think your bow looks fine, but if you find a good class let me know, I am so pathetic at tying bows....all my cards have sheer ribbon just tied in a knot--no disguising that! lol Beautiful flowers and I love that scroll frame. Very creative! Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Double D Challenge Blog, Donna, DT Member.

What a wonderful idea just to put a bouquet on the front, but you didn't stop there, you put those wonderful wood pieces on to frame it and it's perfect! Thanks for joining us at Penny's Paper Crafty Challenges!
