DT Card for Lexi's Creations Challenge #34 - Flowers

My DT card for:

Lexi's Creations Challenge # 34 Flowers

Sponsor: Ewe 2 can Craft a great site for the things you need to embellish a card such as marvellous buttons, charms, including Christmas and Easter collections,etc.
Prize for this week is a fabulous selection of charms from EWE 2 CAN CRAFT)

Have you ever noticed that each card or project seems to have a story to tell! This one has given me a little angst and a fit of laughter. I managed to confuse the sponsor name to a card requirement; I know- but I did.  I was just about finished with the project when I ventured over to the DT site to make sure I had all the requirements; when to my dismay I read Flowers-Ewe 2 can Craft and being in a hurry all I could think of was 'what, they want sheep or lamb  on the flower card', oh my, what to do?? Ask Lexi of course, whatever did she mean- so off  with the email. Lexi must have fallen off her chair when she received it and I almost certainly did when I got her reply. It read "nooo lol, that's the sponsor, the challenge is just flowers". OMG she must think I'm insane was all I could think through gales of laughter. . Just too, too  funny. Good thing I asked though as I wonder what she would have thought if I had submitted a card with the rose bouquet surrounded by a bunch of sheep  he he......sometimes I just amaze myself.

I have made a 4 1'4 x 5 1'2 card  using the 'Roses'
image from Fairy Dust Crafts; such an elegant stamp! Added circles, edge punched flowers(the ones surrounding the circles were punched individually and glued on  one at a time so you can image my angst when I thought they might be replaced by a sheep:D, punched butterflies, pearls, mulberry paper roses and  enlarged ribbon bows from the image, cut out and covered with crystal effects. I also added some little punched daisy type flowers in red , topped with a pearl and covered with glitter glue.

I decided to add a pizza box and make it a little less decorated.I made a little punched flower out of the designer paper and added it with some punched leaves.
