Anything Goes at 'Papertake Weekly'

Good morning everyone,
Hope you have had a great week-end!. Isn't it lovely to have longer days of daylight, I hate the dark nights and mornings!!  Well it's Tuesday already and time for another Papertake Weekly Challenge and we all love 'Anything Goes'.  There is also an optional extra to include home made flowers.  These can be made using punches or dies, felt, crochet etc... or you could adapt a ready made flower and turn it into something different, the choice is yours.  For my card I used a lovely verse from LOTV, and decorated it with pearls and a flower I made myself.... do you know how excited I was when it came together lol!!  I have spent so much time on the internet looking at flowers, I have forgot now where I saw this one, as there are so many tutorials that make similar types... I have had a go at a few different styles but quiet liked this one, it has lots of dimension and is so strong, considering it's only made out of black, and white card.... I embossed some white card with an embossing folder for the background, and the border is a Martha Stewart punch and I decorated the little daisies with pearls too, but you can't see it so well on the photo.

My Aunty, who is my Mum's Sister passed away this week-end, and I thought that maybe this might make a nice sympathy card, but I'm not sure the verse is quiet right, can't make up my mind.  Does anyone have any thoughts on it?
