Lily of the Valley Cuteness

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well.  I am enjoying my 12 days off work but can't believe how quickly it is flying by.  Can't believe I will be back to work on Tuesday.  But before then I have my lovely daughter coming down from university for the weekend.  So a nice family weekend to look forward to.
I am currently working on some DT cards (trying to get ahead for a change) but I did manage to get this one done last night.  This will be making its way into my stash box as have quite a few birthdays coming up in the middle of the year.

This is a lovely Lily of the Valley image that I picked up when I went to Ally Pally.  I have been itching to ink it up and finally managed it.  I used promarkers to colour it up and added some glamour dust to the bow at the top. The papers are all from Papermania capsule collection and I used coredinations for the matting and layering.  All the edges have been distressed and a light touch of antique linen distress ink added.  For my embellishments I have used some flowers from my stash, buttons for the flower centres, pearls, ribbon and bow and a sentiment.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Stampin for the Weekend - Layers
Pixie Dust Studio - Flowers
Sketch and Stash - use sketch and new/neglected stash (new-image, papers, neglected-flowers)
Digi Doodle - Anything goes
Little Darlings - Flowers
