Too good to waste

A few weeks ago I had a free gift from Boots ... buy two or three No. 7 make up items and received a box of goodies. The goodies were quite good ... but, to a crafter, the box was very appealing, as I cut it up and used it to make three cards - this is the first one - the roses were cut from one part of the box and the embossed black diamond pattern with roses from another part - mounted on to a hot pink card blank, with sentiments added.

This is for:

Make my Monday 72: go green - upcycle
Everybody art 427: recycle
Little red wagon 449: a rose by any other name
The crafty addicts 49: anything goes + option: say it with flowers
Ike's world 109: anything goes/June is busting out all over
AAA cards 116: birthday
MFT birthday project
Dare 2 B artzy June: bright colours
Penny's 383: anything goes
Dragonfly dreams June: anything goes
Word art Wednesday 338: anything goes
Le-Ann's world 101 3: anything goes
Ecelectic Ellapu June: anything goes
Creatalicious 140: anything goes
A bit more time to craft 69: anything goes
A bit more time to craft extra June: anything goes
