Miaow - A pagemap challenge

I enjoyed making the last page ~The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel ~ so much that I was thrilled to see
a very similar design in the March Pagemaps.

This is my take on the sketch.
I have used Basic Grey Sweet Threads papers and white dotted swiss bazzill.

The strip along the bottom has been cut with shredding scissors to create a fringed effect then random
strips added vertically. I cut the flowers from a floral sheet and raised some on 3d foam pads.
I used bubble wrap again to form a dotty pattern along with some splatter of cosmic shimmer mist,
then drew a rough double circle around a plate. I also ran a black line around the edge of the white cardstock.

Some ribbon mesh roses were added in two places along with some butterflies cut with a new Memory Box die set.

I'd had this spray of diamante for ages and decided to cut into two and add to the side.

The photostrip was created with the same app on my iphone, I love the way you can add existing photos to it aswell as create new ones.
A close-up below of the "bubbles" - bit blurry sorry :(

I know there are various ways to spell Miaow but I like this one the best.

Thanks to PageMaps for yet another month of fantastic images for inspiration.
