Mum's the word

Hi all
 This is my DT card for the  "Mums the word"  starting today challenge at cardmadfairy's digi come on get your creativity flowing and join us for this fortnights challenge.
I have used the stunning patterned  butterfly digi from cardmadfairy's creations.
I decided on a white on white theme to make the patterened butterfly stand out.I embossed the  scalloped square with the cuttlebug  divine swirls folder  and the scalloped circle frame had been embossed with  the cuttlebug swiss dots folder. the flowers have been handmade using the spellbinders rose creations [by donna salazar]. and finished with a fabulous gem,
the gems and organza ribbon are  from meiflower crafts..........the pins were handmade by me and you can find a basic tutorial on how to make them for yourself here....
 The wonderful sentiment is by an anonymous author and was sourced from the internet and printed out in the curlz mt font.
I had to photo it on a black background to get a half decent pic !!!
