Flower Girls...

I'm in an ATC swap on a group I belong to.  They had to be 3 ATC's with a theme. 
Seeing as I just received my wedding Magnolia stamps order from Bizzy Bec's I thought I would do flower girls! 
Two of the Maggie girls i have used are from the new wedding collection and the other (holding the tulips in her lap) Is from an older collection that I got from Bizzy Bec's customers choice order.
I have given each of them a nice flower quote.

here they are:

They are all coloured using copics.
Paper is kaiser.

I see MAd for MArkers are calling for ATC's so I will make another one and enter one in to their challenge.
