The Paper Shelter DT - Flower Power

Morning Folks!  WOW Wednesday comes around way too fast don't ya think?  Today is another challenge over at The Paper Shelter and this week our theme is Flower Power.  How marvellous is that?!  Most of us use flowers on all of our creations so this should be an easy one. 
I decided to make an easel card for a change and got a bit snap happy with the camera lol.  The dp I have used is by Magnolia as are the butterflies and tag which are all doohickey dies.  The ribbon is from my stash and I've added a brad.  The rose ribbon, lace and flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Here is a close up of the coloured image to which I've added some frantage for a bit of texture and bling.
I have used a sentiment stamp from Lili of the Valley of the tag.
Here is a side view.  Hope I haven't bored you too much with my many pictures.  I'll be entering my card into the following challenges :
