A Spoon Full of Sugar -challenge 26

Our challenge at A Spoon Full of Sugar this week is called 'Blooming Marvelous' you could use a stamped image of flowers or with flowers on, or flowered paper or add flowers to your card anything you wish.
I have used an image that I received in a swap, I think it's a Pink Petticoat image and not a stamped image but I am sure that is fine! Unfortunately the outlines run a little in places which has spoilt it a bit, but I have lacked enthusiasm for painting images the past fews days so had to go with it. After colouring the image with my pearl paints, which are shimmering nicely, I attached prima flowers over the top of the ones on the images and added a small gem to the centres. Then added various sized and coloured flowers from the same set and a few buttons, the sentiment is a rub on.
a close up of the flowers added to the dress!This weeks prize is 2 lovely stamps which have kindly been donated by our new sponsors Alota Rubber Stamps.
I am also entering my card in for another couple of challenges, I followed the sketch from Sketch Saturday and seeing that I've used buttons I can enter it for the Secret Crafter challenge which is called 'Cute as a Button'.
