Roses are Pink!!

Hi. Hope you all had a great weekend!
It was my best friend's birthday yesterday and so over the weekend I made her a card. My inspiration for the card came from an old UK craft magazine I happened to chance upon at a small book stand. My luck!
 Well, this is the card I made her.


The magazine recommends using circle punches to get the petals. Since I had just one circle punch, I hand cut the petals. The leaves too are handcut.







The centers of the roses have little pearls in them to give it a soft glow.

Im entering this card in:
CAS-ual Fridays: CFC58
Less is More: Week 73 recipe - Paper piecing

I enjoyed making this card. Hope you like it too!
Hugs.

PS: I made it to Top 3  at Beyond Grey Challenges for this card. Thank you BGC!
