DTBST#121 - Flowers & Flurishes (Cheerful Chelsea)

Hello and Happy Thursday! Today on the Sassy Studio Designs Blog we have a new challenge for you - Create a project using "Flowers & Flurishes"!  Be sure to pop over to the Sassy Studio Designs Blog to see the other DT projects, as some of the talented ladies will be previewing a new image that will be available to purchase on Saturday in the store.

My card I have for you today using the Cheerful Chelsea image. I used patterned paper with flowers and embossed a flourish image set behind my image.  Here is a pic of my card (the picture would not pick up the little black, pink and silver rhinstones that I heat set into the flowers but they are there and look so cool in real life).......
