oh my goodness i just read the date on my original post! seems like so long ago and my room looks so different
i am pleased to say i can't bear to take them down (because then i would have to think of something equally awesome to replace them with)
but i have changed the leaves/blossoms/petals from blue and white to purple and gold since i now have purple curtains...
and thank you all for the lovely comments
happy crafting! x
