Cheery Lynn Challenge 26 Flowers - Must Be Made With Dies

The challenge this week at Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge Blog is FLOWERS - MUST BE MADE WITH DIES OR A PUNCH!!
You must create a theme using  Flowers for this week's challenge!!

Don't forget to use at least ONE Cheery Lynn die!!  Feel free to use more Cheery Lynn Dies!!
 This is a 6" card that has two layers of Cheery Lynn's beautiful Lace Square Heart.  I distressed the layers with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Frayed Burlap.  The flowers are created with Miniature Rose  and Medium Rose.  They were die cut from white cardstock.  I inked them with Adirondack's Pool and Time Holtz Distress Ink Worn Lipstick.  The leaves under the roses were inked with Shades Kiwi from Sweet Stamps.  I tried to make them look a little different.  I dry embossed the first 4 layers on the back of the petals.  The top two I used a Quilling tool to curl the petals up to create a center of the flower.  Here is a close up of one flower:
The foliage under the bottom roses is Pine Branches colored with the same ink of the medium rose leaves.  The corners are Lace Corner Deco A which also has flowers in it.  The corners are inked with Worn Lipstick too.  The pearls were created with a Viva Decor Pearl Pen.  The DP is from My Minds Eye Lime Twist, Life of the Party.  The little bee is from my stash.  The image Puggles is from Wink Wink.  Puggles is colored with Copics.

Copics Used:
E43, W00, W0, W1, W3, W5 E29, R83
