Flower power!

I have been sorting some of the flowers I bought from ebay a few years ago....they were a real bargain...over 500 flowers and petals for less than 15 pounds...I don't think I will ever manage to find another bargain like that again....but I live in hope. As I was checking what colours I need to stock up on a few just arranged themselves together and this is the card that evolved...
I have been experimenting with a few fonts and sentiments. I also used some die cut leaves under the flowers which you can't see very clearly in the photo. I used mulberry paper and they really add to the texture.
In the background you can see some of our lovely palms and tomato plants. We have not had any rain for ages so the tomato crop has involved lots of work watering them...but they taste so different from those in the shops.
Card Supplies: Flowers - Ebay, stash and WOD.
Card, backing paper and ribbon - Ollie Doodles, Costa Blanca.
Bling and half pearls- Papercellar.
Flourishes and leaves - Cheery Lyn, Sissix and BigShot.
Sentiment cut using Nesties.
Glitter- Stickles.

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges.

Blog-a-Doodle- Wedding, Anniversary.
Creative Card Crew- Anything Goes.
Polka Doodles- Autumn Leaves.
