Crafty Purple Frog Challenge #34 Flower Power

This is my first DT project for Crafty Purple Frogs, I was thrilled to be chosen for the team and the bonus of course is using all the gorgeous artwork by Ching-Chou Kuik. Our challenge for this fortnight is "Flower Power" so lets see all your blooms.
I've used the "Scent of Beauty" decoupage for my card.

Backing panel is made using a Martha Stewart PATP, backing paper is from a Melissa Frances pad called 5th Avenue. Image and sentiment are matted onto scalloped nesties, swirls are Marianne Designs dies, flowers, pearls, sentiment and ribbon from my stash. Hat pin from Joanna Sheen.
The inside has been decorated to match. I hope you can see the dimension on the decoupage on this shot.

All decoupage and pyramage sheets are available from The Crafty Purple Frog.

New in at the Crafty Purple Frog - 50 Valentines Papers collection. They're gorgeous and not just for Valentines.
