Simple Flower Pot Card

This card measures 6ins x 6ins.

Make no bones about it, this is a very simple card.
I recently nipped into Hobbycraft and found that their packs of 50 6ins x 6ins blank white cards had been reduced from £5 to £2.50.  I haven't used pre-cut cards for years now after I had a run of cards that weren't the best quality, however, since I have started to completely cover the fronts of some of my cards with different papers it seemed a bit wasteful to use my usual top quality white linen card on them, it seemed a no brainer to give these cards a try again, especially with Christmas looming on the horizon.
On this occasion  I covered the card blank with a natural linen effect paper (how ironic is that!?)
........ and added the three potted flower embellishments from this pack of Poundland, dimensional, doodle effect stickers, which have a very professional looking acetate front.
I then hand wrote the sentiment, using a black fine liner pen, which I mat and layered on silver mirror card.
Finally I put a flat back pearl in the centre of each flower, which, if I am honest, didn't really add anything to the overall appearance of the card, however on the other hand I always think that adding a few clusters of three dots here and there helps to bring a card together.
