{SS} #162: Swirls

Good morning sweeties!
How is your week going so far?  Mine seems to be flying at the speed of lightening!!
It seems like every time I fall asleep I lose a week!!  LOL 

Well, I am glad to be here today to share with you a card I created for this weeks challenge at SweetStamps.  This weeks challenge is:
I kick myself for not having the, ArtsyfArtsy Flourishes stamp set.  I had an envisioned another project for this weeks challenge, but I managed to pull it together!! :)  For my project this week, I am using Wondrous Things sentiment .  It is such a beautiful sentiment, so I decided to use it as the focus on my card.    I kept the colors cool and fresh, adding just 3 velvet flowers to it. 
I embossed the background paper, using Sizzix Swirl embossing folder and added part of a swirl pearl flourish to add a little bit of bling. 

Looking forward to seeing your swirl project and the interesting ways, this challenge can be interpreted.
