Cheery Lynn Challenge - Flowers

Good Morning :) I hope everyone is having a good week, and the weather hasnt been toooo wet where you are!.  Its been absolutely glorious here in Scotland for a change, so 'nyah, nyah, nyah! LOL :D

Now my card today is for our new theme of 'Flowers' this week on the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge, and the winner will receive a $20 coupon to spend on the Cheery Lynn website.  Fabby prize! :)

My card was made by handstitching K&Co papers onto olive green bazzill card, and using the B137 - Tiffany Border, to edge both sides of the floral paper.  This border cuts so crisp - I love it! :) .  I made the chrysanthemum type flowers from centura pearl card and from all 3 sizes of the rose dies - B152 - Miniature RoseB154 - Medium Rose and  B155 - Large Rose  (these are so versatile).

I made the swirly decorations using one of the corner dies from B162 - Lace Corner - Deco B    and just hooked them  in front and behind the ovals to make an ornate frame.

Other dies used on this project were:

I will be entering my card in the below competitions:
