Can you smell the Flowers?

Don't you just love this beautiful image 
from Mitzi Sato-Wluff? 

My favorite type of card is an easel card, so of course this one was made that way.

To make this card I followed the specifications required by CDAC's  challenge "Easy as 1-2-3" running until March 31, 2013.  Each project has to include:
1  -  Flower
2  -  Design Paper
3  -  Pieces of Bling
1.  The flowers I have attached to my card are from different places using my Cricut and punches.   The larger flowers are made by folding a heart shape in half and joining them in the center.
2.  The pink design paper is from Paper Pizazz and the turquoise paper is from my stash.
3.  For the bling, I used stick on gems and pearls.  Floral stem wires were wrapped around a stylus and inserted.  A lovely butterfly was attached.

The image was cut out using a spellbinder die and the background dies were done using svg files I have.  The coloring was done using my copics.
