Lavender and Lace

I had all the elements to hand more or less for this card which I wanted to make for a challenge I had seen. Base is a scalloped white card and the purple card stock and lavender parchment paper from my stash.The image is from Hunkydory's '2nd book of flowers which I have trimmed down slightly to fit my layers. Lace was on my desk , flowers and pearls also from my stash.Sentiment was die cut from the remaining cardstock I had left over using 'Diesire' words by Crafters companion. Added a few stickles to the roses as an afterthought as I felt the card had something lacking but now I'm not so sure. Isn't that always the way! Can't change it now.
