Flowers For You

*** I have 2 posts today-please scroll down and hit older posts if you don't see two ***

Do you ever have those days when an idea comes to you and you can't do anything else until that idea is tried or made?
I had this vision in my head to make a bouquet of flowers using dies.
A doily and a scalloped circle die were used for the base and a vintage lace I had in my supplies.
I used a sponge brush for the handle with some ribbon wrapped around the handle.
I made several flowers and leaves with scraps of my hoarded  paper (a couple pieces are CTMH that I have had for a couple years) for the actual foliage.There  are several
flourishes as filler in my bouquet.Don't you love the pearl centers?
 I am trying to share all the views so you can see how it went together.
I used the following Cheery Lynn dies:
Stacker Flower 2
Stacker Flower 5
Stacker Flower 6
Fanciful Flourish
French Pastry Doily
 Scalloped Circle

I would like to enter the following challenges:
