Inspired by little red wagon

Sometimes challenges dovetail together so well I can't help but combine them - this is my first time playing at Inspired By, where challenge #21 is to create a project inspired by this lovely vase of tulips:
And this week's challenge at little red wagon  is to use three or more flowers on your card. Both challenges end on Wednesday. I was inspired to use a combination of purple flowers - and let me count how many blooms I added....

Supplies: sentiment from Gina K Designs;
Wild Plum adirondack ink; stamps on envelope from Basic Grey;
gems from dollar store; quilled flowers by me
...and it's got 20 flowers. I have several tulip die-cuts that are just begging to happen into a card, but everything I've tried so far just hasn't clicked. I may be back with another card for Inspired By if I can make them work :) 

*also popping this one into the Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp

20 flowers on one card... it's fantastic! Love the mix of purples, it's my all time fave colour, but I find it difficult to use in cards because the tones are always so varied. This is perfect!
