Pink romance

The bad thing about re-scheduling my exams: I guess I'll fall behind schedule for about a month. The good thing: crafting time!
Today's card contains some of my favourite things: stitching, flowers and soft shades.
While making this card, I followed two bingo challenges: the one from creaine challenges and the one from 613 avenue create, which was particularly tricky as you have to pick at least 5 themes yourself. These are the picks I've made:
I decided to make a little Valentine's Day card with a silver stitched heart and combined the silver yarn with a light-pink background paper. In the end, I added a couple of punched flowers and pearls. 
I'm quite satisfied with the result even if I would have done things differently now. 
Prior to stitching, I punched the corners of the white paper, which would meet the "die cut" part of the bingo challenge. Obviously, I forgot that I'd add punched flowers later on. As the stitching was done already, I decided to use the paper anyway and decorated the corners with pearls. However, I think I'd rather have not-punched corners as I'm not sure the punched ones fit the card. 
Or is it just this complicating-tendency of mine again?
