Artastic flower garden

Here is my layout for Artastic this month.
It sarted as a piece of patterned paper for cricket layouts.I stuck the orange spotted paper over the border saying cricket, then machine stitched stems for my hand made flowers.The fabric twisted organza one and the felt flowers I made myself.(I'm selling felt flowers see 3 posts before this one if you're interested)
A friend knitted the 2 flowers for me to co-ordinate with the colours I've chosen. I can no longer knit owing to my Rheumatoid arthritis.
There is a photo of bluebells on here which I chose not to mat as it looked more natural on the grassy background.There is no title (Purposely) but the journalling tag points out where the photo was taken.
Here are some close ups...
