A warm smile for the beginning of the year

I decided to enter two challenges and to also challenge myself to be bold, and use up some old stash as well. So this is the result:

I followed the sketch from CPS199 and the colour scheme from CR84FN9 (yellow, peach and light pink) and will enter these two challenges from these two great new sites. 

I used two die cut flowers from a packet bought about three years ago, and the circle from which one was cut and distressed the edges.  I added another flower and the fabric brad.  I used a white paper doily which I had distressed with the Antique Linen ink and put this behind the 'flower' I had created so that you could see it through the holes.  I then put the sticker on the journaling card and attached the trim, sticking these to the DP.  I stamped flourish, and embossed it, and stuck the doily down with some ribbon behind it, and then added the sprinkles for some extra bling.  The whole was then attached to the pink bazzil card, with the flower and the card slightly handing over the edge.   

Stamps:  A flourish from a clear stamp set I have had for ages (no Name)
Paper and Card:  Pink Bazzill; doily; Webster's Pages Journaling Card; Prima Annalee collection DP; 
Ink: SU Pear Pizzazz; Tim Holtz Distressed Antique Linen
Other:  Annabell's Sprinkles; K and Co Fabric Brad; Webster's Pages trim; sentiment sticker; flower; used  Christmas ribbon; Allison Ellis White Lustre EP
