Blooming Marvelous GDT with Moving Along With The Times

Good morning friends! 

Well I think it is just Bloomin Marvelous today isn't it? 
Well I would be thinking that because I have been very lucky to be joining the gorgeous girls at 

This week the girls have a delicious challenge that I know there is 
NO EXCUSE for not playing along!

Challenge #133 Blooming Marvelous!
(Show some flowers/ have flowers on your creation)
Too Easy! 

I had so much fun playing along to this challenge and even managed to step greatly out of my comfort zone into colors of rich bright greens and yelllow(s), that generally I would never go near!  I also pulled all this together from my scrap buckets!  

The green and yellow ladybug fabric piece along the bottom started this card off and the rest just followed.  I don't know why but I did have a moment where I wanted (and I was having) the ladybug fabric, then the lace, then the neon green ribbon and then the thin yellow ribbon, my mind would just not change on this and so while putting it all together I was thinking this is way way to much, it finished so nicely that I am glad I let my creative mind go with it after all.

The main ribbon in this is a very real fluro green, like the safety jackets that the road work crews all wear, sadly my camera has not done the color justice :(  The fabric is embroidered and I salvaged it from Nana's crafting box that was given to me, and blinged up the ladybug spots with some pearls and jewels. The sunflower spray is left over from another project and the 3 green roses were in the bottom of my ribbon box :$

This week there is a fabulous prize up for grabs! From
