Flowers, Ribbons, and bows ... OH MY!!!

I thought I would share some of my work so far. 
(Sorry about the pics in advance. Not my best photography)
For the last 2 days I have been making fondant flowers, ribbons, and bows... OH MY ...
I know have a "crick" in my neck from pinstakingly cutting flowers and other elements for my parents wedding cake. 
This is a sample cascade that will go on the cake. 
Granted, if I had more time to plan.. these would be bad ass.
I decided to go with a  Mary Engelbreit  themed flower for a whimsy look.
I pray that my mom and dad love it.. I will take like.
They are not very over the top people ..so I decided their cake should represent them.
I also have roses and leaves, that I cut and shaped by hand ..like a nut. LOL
These are just a few, there are many more. Trust me ..many many more.
 One of my roses.. I was hoping the pic would show the pearl dust that I hand sprinkled on each and every flower. But no such luck. It is really a nice touch .. let me tell ya. Sparkly... I love it.
Ok I have to run.. got to make more flowers!!!
