Swirls and Flourishes

Good morning everyone, did you manage to catch Nikky's show on Create and Craft on Wednesday? If not you can catch it HERE. It's well worth a watch as there are some fabulous new products on there that you won't want to miss!
So today I have some mid challenge inspiration for you from the challenge at the Polkadoodles challenge blog that started last week, and the challenge is "Swirls and Flourishes" and here is my make.
I've used the fab new Little Kingdom collection that was on the show on Wednesday. The whirls and flourishes are on the fabulous toadstools and I have added some dried flowers as added flourishes to the little scene. To create this I used a box that had some little shot glasses in and started off my painting it black to frame the lovely bright colours I knew I was going to use. I cut out lots of flowers, embellies, toadstools and houses. I layered up some of the items to make them pop out. Then I decided on the arrangement in to box and stuck everything down with either 3D foam or glue. I added some Wink Of Stella pen to the butterfly and home sentiment to make them sparkle. I then added some dried flowers along the bottom of the box and behind the flowers. Finally I finished it off by adding a bow of bakers twine.
Here are a few close ups for you to see the detail better.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:
