Lilac Wreath

Hellllooooooo bloggers, I'm home from a lovely holiday in North Wales and ready for some crafting!  We had a wonderful time staying in the village of Portmeirion but I didn't half miss all my papery bits and bobs!
I made this card before I went away but didn't have time to blog it.
The stamp is a Woodware one and has been coloured with Promarkers and decoupaged up after shaping the flowers with an embossing tool.  I added some yellow glitter flock to the flower centres for some touchy-feelly texture.  The sentiment is a Papermania one and I finished the wreath with some lilac shimmer dots.
The papers are Papermania Henbury Lane mixed with some Bazzil card and Core'dinations which has been embossed with a Sheena Douglass folder.  The butterflies were fussy cut from the Henbury Lane papers.
Ribbon, bow, large green pearls and some more shimmer dots and it's done.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Penny Black and More - summer blooms
I Love Promarkers - #125 - circles
Joanna Sheen - going round in circles
Stamptacular Sunday - #172 - wings and bling
