Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge 170 - Add a Flourish

I  received new dies from Cherry Lynn this past month and are being used in my Valentine cards this year.  The Cherry Lynn French doily was curled and used as the flower holder. 

Additional Cherry Lynn dies long with the new dies are:

Small Tea Rose and rose buds were made from this same die
Anastasia Border
Sophia Doily
French Doily (Holder for the flowers)
Baby Breath
Small Gardenia Flower
Shasta Daisy
Flourish Leaf Strip
Mini Fanciful Flourish

Additional dies were the Impression Obsession cupids and Marianne Design flourish stem.   I used Ranger Metal Art embossing powder and glitter on vellum paper after cutting out the cupid to provide some dimension and added crystal glitter glue to parts of the cupid.

I added small dots of Ranger Pearl  inside of the Sophia Doily.  I added a heart charm to the flowers.  I formed the bow first and melted it with the hot glue gun to melt it enough and give it vintage look.
