Fabric Rosette Cross

When I first started this cross, my initial plan was to make it with 3 rosettes in a row and with 3 columns.  Then my husband took a look at what I was doing and suggested making it just one row of rosettes with tiny white rosettes placed in all the little empty spaces.  I LOVED his idea and LOVE how it came out. 
I have a fabric rosette tutorial you can check out here!!!  I hot glued all the rosettes together.  Then, I cut up a sturdy piece of JUNK MAIL and glued it on the back of the rosettes to give it a little extra firmness.
Then I twisted and hot glued a little twist tie on the back for a hook. 
What do y’all think?? 
I hung it up in Alie’s room just above her sweet vintage praying children we found at the Goodwill.  No matter how much I adjusted the colors I couldn’t get it to quite match the true color of the teal rosettes.  They aren’t quite as dark and are just a few shades darker but match perfectly the color of the little boys pajamas.  Now for the most important question of all.  YES, Alie loves her new fancy MOMMY made cross.
