One Stop Craft Challenge

The theme on one stop craft challenge this week is roses and i have had these rose stickers in my craft stash for a while and this was just the incentive i needed to do something with them.
There was only one corner sticker in the pack (bottom right) so i placed the one top right with bits hanging off and trimmed to fit so i had roses over both corners. I used my xcut shape cutters (ovals) to cut out the 2 oval and mounted them on foam pads, the bottom one i stamped with a background stamp in versamagic chalk in pink grapefruit. I matted them up then added the rose sticker and a chiffon ribbon bow (it looks yellow in pic but is pink).
I added a strip of wide silver mesh mounted topper on top. Wrapped a pink/purple fibre round card and tied a charm to it.
I took 2 metal flowers and coloured with pink metallic pen then roughly stamped with pink grapefruit chalk ink to give a 2 tone effect, used white flower brads to fix them to my card.
I usually find pink to be my hardest colour to work with but i found this card easy to do.
Thank you very much for taking the time to look at my work.
