Pretty In Purple

I bought some pre coloured Lili of the Valley toppers ages ago from their ebay shop - I can't actually find the toppers to link to them so I'm presuming that they are now discontinued.  Anyway, I bought them and then they have largely sat untouched and as I had a tidy up just after New Year (to make room for Samuel's trophy cabinet - he now has 14 trophies in 12 months!) I found them again.

So, wanting to make a quick card I used one:

Papers are Dovecraft Back to Basics, the flowers are from my stash (they actually were part of a garland I bought a few years ago from a charity shop as the flowers came apart easily and were pretty!)  Ribbon is from my stash - the wider one underneath is actually from Lidl!

I've hand written the tag and attached it with some embroidery thread.  You can just about see the vellum circle underneath the image - the edges have been dotted with liquid pearls.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:
