gemstone flower cards

Hi all
 I am busy making cards for a craft stall on monday ...I made a clean and simple  white flower card ...I liked it so much i have made it in 3 different colours ,I have not added a sentiment to the front as some times at craft events i am asked for a card with no sentiment so i am ready for them this time,I bet i don't get asked now !!!
i have used ROYGBV cardstock,, an old lace effect background stamp that i have had for 2 yrs and can't remember where i bought it from.The flowers are made using the spellbinders donna salazaar dies which i embossed with the stampin up basket weave embossing folder.
The stunning flatback gem  flower centre and  pearls are from   meiflower crafts
