Peonies and Roses

Hello lovely peeps, and welcome to my new follower :o)

It's the first Saturday of the month, so it's time for a new challenge at Crafty Calendar. The theme is "Mum's Day/Special Female" and the sponsor is Wild Orchid Crafts

The main image on my card is from an old Art Pad by Lili of the Valley - this one is now available as a digital download from their Simply Print range and is called Peonies and Roses

I  framed it with a Scalloped Square die-cut from Spellbinders and some chopped up
Catalina Wreath die-cuts from Memory Box

Next I covered a 7"x7" card blank with Raspberry Road and First Edition papers, plus some gorgeous lace from The Ribbon Girls - Charlotte Elizabeth Vintage Style

I've added a cluster of flowers from my stash, including some White Chrysanthemums from Wild Orchid Crafts. The leaves were die-cuts using a set of dies I got on Ebay (from China)

The tag was cut from matching paper using the Elisse Bigz die by Sizzix

and the 'Mum' was added with a Papermania Relations stamp 

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
