A very flowery Anya

There's a great sketch over at A Spoonfull Of Sugar that I just had to have a go at.
The sketch shows lots of buttons but I have changed them for flowers and a large circle for a large flower so I have used quite a bit of blooms. Who doesn't love flowers though?
Both papers are ones I bought from the Papeterie that were from a pad and had no name on so I have no idea who makes them. It did say they were baby papers though so possibly from a baby stack? Anyway I really liked this strawberry one and the little seeds on them are glittered too.
Anya was another image I got in a swap. I really must get more stamps because I haven't used one of my own image stamps for a while except the Stamps Happen ones. I can't help it though, these images people were kind enough to send me are lovely so I can't just leave them lying there gathering dust now can I ?
I did use one of my own stamps though for the swirls. It is from Inkadinkadoo's gem stone jewels set. I stamped one flourish then done a little bit of masking and stamped part of it again so they were joined together.
The sentiment is from a foiled sentiment sheet i have had for ages, pearls and button from my stash and all the flowers are Prima from Aries Crafts.
The huge one is from the Antigua pack and the others are a mix from the bitty bag and sweet and sassy cinderella.
Oh and the green strip is punched with my fiskars scalloped lace punch.
I am off now to do a bit of blog hopping to catch up with you all.
