Pretty in pink

My second card for today is a blooming one in pink and white. The central image is made with decoupage on cardboard and was part of a gift box I created a couple of years ago using roses in different styles and techniques. Now, I decided to unmount it and place those motifs on separate craft projects.
I've already used one piece of it in the red cross-stitched rose card for mom, and over the past week, another piece found its match. I didn't want to interfer with the pink roses in the middle, so I used a simple white background fabric with a tiny silver foliage pattern.
Originally, I planned to add pink pearls only, but as it looked a bit too empty, I added a couple of roses and white pearls, too.
Surprisingly, the card fits exactly to the lavender faggots I made a while ago. And even more surprisingly, I managed to create a whole card without stitching :)
