Flower/Pearls and a Scrap

Morning and I have two DT posts today the second one is for the "Add a Flower" challenge at Creative Craft Cottage.
Now this card practically made itself-I was looking through my flower dies and papers and found this torn piece od embossed watercolour card with colour already added left over from another project didn't go with any papers so matted it onto black and Memory Box die cut flower in black and added three pearls.
Will add a sentiment when needed.

I love it when a card just comes together like this. It’s a stunning design, love the contrast of the watercolored piece and the black silhouette and background. No sentiment needed in my opinion.
