Card with punched flowers

The weekend is finished here in Sth Oz and I'm feeling bushed!!! I haven't made any cards today so I am going to share one I made a while ago using punches.
The pink rose was made with a 6 petal punch and then you gradually make each layer smaller by cutting some petals out and then overlapping the end petals and adhering with glue. You then glue it all together after you have shaped the petals with an embossing tool. The other flowers are just a punched flower with minimal shaping.  Pearls to finish off the centres and a few strips of green paper for the flourishes and for the leaves. The oval is drawn on with a gold pen and then fancy corner stickers are placed at the corners of the embossed rectangle. This is a bit hard to see in the pic. The card has deckled edges.
I haven't decorated the inside as yet.
Here it is - sorry the pic is not very good, I tried scanning it, but the flower is too big to sit flat enough. It just made the whole card look out of shape!!!
