Pretty Bouquet

I hope everyone had a fulfilling ;) Thanksgiving. I am pooped, but I had made this card yesterday and wanted to show you all! I have used a Lili of the Valley pre-colored die cut from a prize win i mentioned a couple of posts earlier. I really didn't know if I would use it because I like to color my own images, but it came in handy for a quick card fix for this paper junkie!  It is super cute and luckily enough it went along with The Ribbon Girls challenge of shades of purple!

The sentiment is computer generated and all the flowers except for the deeper purple peony are Wild Orchid Crafts. The papers are Prima's Nature Garden. I glitter glued the butterflies (and looking now I see I have overlooked one, darn it!) I also added some Liquid Pearls around her.  The sketch is for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge and I have managed to cover up all but a tiny corner of the black flowered paper layer! This is the sketch:
