A Dozen Flowers Please!

Hello everyone, 
Im still at home with the everlasting flu.... and last night I even got pink eyes??? Yes both!! Say what! Well, tomorrow I see the doctor so I will be asking for several medications...
This morning after I cleaned my eyes out with warm compresses, I took a warm shower and felt alright enough to go downstairs into my craft room. So, here is a quick card that I made for this weeks challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs # 170 -Add a Flourish.
All dozen little flowers were made using the miniature roses. If you like me to make a tutorial on how easy and fast you can make them, just leave me a comment down below. :)

I have seen some cards in the past with this 9 frame look and I finally gave it a try. I like my cards 5 x6 or 5 x 5 and sometimes 4.25 x 5.5 so this card is a little smaller than some of the cards I have seen but I just made my squares a bit smaller. These squares happen to be 1.5 x 1.5 inches.  I cut the center of the french pastry doily out so the patterned paper could shine through. 

So as I mentioned in my latest miniature rose tutorial that I normally dont chalk/ink the centers of my flowers. However, the more I thought about it....I thought I would give it a try. I like the way they turned out and will probably do that more in the future. I LOVE pearls however, I was thinking maybe some mini brads today? It really went well with the grey background. 

I couldnt help myself using the same title again. I just love the wave to it. Need to find more I added swirls and my favorite little leaves. I was planning to add a butterfly and then as I kept looking at the card I thought "a bit too much" you ever feel that way?? 

Cheery Lynn Diecuts Used:
