Bragging about a "Whiter Shade of Pale"

Evening all....I made this little Brag book for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge as they have a Book theme Challenge and decorated to fit the Mid-week Magnolias Challenge who theme is "Dreaming of a White Christmas.
I coloured Tilda with Copic Markers, the flowers started out as some plain cheap white Prima flowers which I painted with white pearl paint and then heat embossed with Stampendous Shabby Chic white embossing powder then I spritzed them with Tattered  Angel Pearl Glimmer mist and added a crystal to the centre of each.
I cut the leaves with a Martha Stewart punch, I punched them from Basic Grey distressed dark white paper I also used another Basic Grey distressed paper to make the cover of the Brag book. I cut the Bazzill pages and rounded the corners and then stitched them altogether up the spin of the Brag book.
the Silver wax embellishment I made using a kit from 7Gypsies, the Button is from a basic Grey pack and the sentiment is from Cats Life Press.
I am also entering my book in to these challenges;
