Guest Designer at Paper Dolls! I Love these Free 3D Rolled Flowers!!!

I am a Guest Designer for the last Paper Dolls challenge!  I am so excited to share my project for the challenge, but before I do, I want to thank Thienly and Tamara, aka The Paper Dolls, for the work they put into the Paper Dolls blog!  I enjoyed following the blog, entering the challenges and playing along in the link-ups.  My favorite part was seeing their fabulous projects each week - they are uber talented!  T&T, thanks for introducing me to so many fabulous SVG designers and for letting me be a part of your final challenge!  I wish you continued success on your personal blogs (Thienly - Mod Paperie and Tamara - Happy Life, Crafty Wife) and other creative outlets!

I was originally planning to do a bigger project and ended up having a crazy busy week, so I decided to make a card instead. 

Aren't these rolled flowers gorgeous!!!

THE CHALLENGE - Create a project using the FREE 3D rolled flower SVGs provided on the Paper Dolls blog (created by Cindy from Creative Pointe).  There are three different rolled "swirl" flowers - a large and small rose, and a carnation. 
Other Materials:
- Circle punch
- Stamps by i-cling
- Glimmer Mist
- Distress Ink
- Paper by Bazzill & Coredinations
- Lace by Stampin' Up!
- Felt flower brad by Making Memories
- Gems by Creative Charms

I really really hope you will join us for the last challenge!  Let's send off the Paper Dolls on a high note!  I can't wait to see what you create!
