Stop and smell the flowers!

Today, I am showing you a card that I was asked to make - the brief was for a 'pretty' card, but not to have 'little girls' on it!!!   Hope they like it!

I used this cute Penny Black, Bountiful stamp, coloured with Copics and the hedgie and butterfly are 3D'd. I also added a sprinkling of glitter to the stamp and the flowers.
With all those flowers, pearls and the lace, I kept the background simple - stitching just one layer of pretty DP in place.
