Set of Decorated Cards with my handmade Flowers for a Flower Swap

Hi Everyone, just wanted to share a group of 5 cards with flowers that I am submitting for a flower swap on MAS.    (  I To participate in the swap, everyone has to submit 5 decorated cards with 3 flowers on each card.  I have my "Traditional Xmas Collection" which consists of 2 poinsettias and 1 tapestry ribbon rose with a handmade stick pin on a decoupaged tag.  One is "It's Spring Again Collection" that contains 2 tulips (Penny Duncan Creations cut files) and one Gabrielle and one altered Gabrielle that I made following Gabrielle Pollaco's tutorial on her beautiful flowers.  I also made the butterfly following the tutorial by Penny Duncan.  I beaded a lavender spray that is wired through the punched hole of the tag. This tag was made using a mask of pine branches and rubbing over it with fall colors of ink.  The "Ribbon Flower Collection" consists of: the top two are made from grosgrain ribbon and the bottom one is made from "Happy Birthday" satin ribbon and I have beaded a bumble bee and attached it to the flower.  The tag is stamped with the Stampabilities wooden mounted Music Collage stamp and embossed with black embossing powder. Another is "Moulin Rouge Collection"  The tag has been decorated with the Tim Holtz COMO15Paris Stamp and embossed with black embossing powder and I also stamped a butterfly from Bright Ideas collection and embossed with red embossing powder. The center of the black organza lollipop flower is an acrylic flower with a rhinestone center and it has 3 feathers and a string of red pearls and the other two flowers are poppies made with Tim Holtz pine cone die. The last is "Into the Wild Collection" The pine cone spray is made with the Tim Holtz pine cone die and I decorated it with white puff paint and white irridescent glitter. The other two blossoms are Australian gumnut blossoms that I hand cut and decorated with the same sprigs cut from the Tim holtz die. I put glossy accents on the tips of the petals and dipped them in gold glitter and highlighted the leaves with black stayz on ink.  This I made following a tutorial on youtube by Valita (
Thank you for looking and if you have any questions, please let me know.
