Valentine Card with Non Traditional colors

 Hi All! Hope you all are having a fun weekend. I made an easel card today based on some of the challenges I wanted to enter. My starting point was Mojo Monday Sketch #226.
I chose the round card and made a circular easel card for the first time. I have been wanting to make one ever since I saw this card made by my dear friend Priya Sondhi.  
Though my card is a love card, the colors used are non traditional. I used two of my most favorite colors - Yellow and Purple. The big bloom and leaves are handmade without using and punches or diecuts. [See similar but bigger bloom on my other card here].
The lovely cream colored roses are a gift from my friend which she got during her visit to UK. The purple mulberry roses are purchased from Ujjwal's store. The sentiment is from Itsy Bitsy. The silver swirls are from Pie Lane. The buttons are from my stash.
 A peek into the inside of the card...
