A girlie card for my blog

Hi guys, my lat two posts have been for my hubby and there is only so much you can do for a mans card right? so I'm putting this on for a feminine feel lol,
This was a commissioned card  I made a few weeks ago but thought I'd blog it now, I have used an 8 x 8" card because I wanted to fit all the elements in,
The gorgeous papers are by Maja again, this time the 12 x 12 so i could get the size I needed, I used the same technique on the papers as my GDT card for Bunny Zoe's  I showed you a few posts back, I love the clock peeking out of the top corner, so love this clock paper by maja design, have I said that before???? lol
the pearl heart on top of the scrunched paper is by  Marianne Design and is from Bunny Zoe's,
The image is by Lily of the Valley and is coloured with my copics then I have used distress inks on the outer edges to give a softer look, a hint of  frantage in shabby white adds a little detail,
On the edge of the paper I added some lace again for interest and texture then made lots of paper roses using some of the papers and added a pearl in the centre and an odd dutch doobadoo paper art leaf or two, these I coloured with Distress ink, the flourish is a  large die by Cheery Lynn,
The butterfly is made using delight clay from Crafts and Me and a Martha Stewart butterfly mould,
I have added yet more detail with a crafters workshop Gothic Romance stencil and some home made 3D paste, another of the flourish dies, plus a smaller one too, yet more flowers, butterflies and a clock, so love these, 
A hint of cheese cloth finishes off the card, 
Took me ages making those flowers he he,
well hope this is feminine after my men cards lol
