MAWTT Swirls and/or Curls

After a long break due to my eye problems I hope I'm back for good. I'm bringing you my theme this week 'Swirls and/or Curls' for the challenge over at Moving Along with the Times. My design team friends have been helping me out with entry comments whilst I've been on my break so I'd like to say a huge thank you to Wendy and Jenny.

It's taken me a few days to get my card finished but at last it's done. My base card is by Joanna Sheen. I love this paper that came from a huge Costco pack that I bought quite a few years ago and I haven't had an opportunity to use this pattern. I decided her curls would make a show on my card along with a Snip Art wooden swirl that I bought online at Craftbox. I matted the paper on to dark red Papermill card (to match her dress). I placed the swirl to the left and then set some Wild Orchid Craft flowers at the base of the swirl along with some die cut leaves. I added a few red Mei Flower gems amongst the flowers and then added a gem to her ribbon in her hair and to the band on her wrist. She looks the kind of girl who would like gems. lol

I'm hoping you'll come along to join us in our challenge and to welcome me back.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Artbymiran Challenge 75: Anything Goes
Crafting with Friends Challenge 34: Anything Goes
Makingmemoriescrafting Challenge 1: Anything Goes
Morgan's ArtWorld Challenge 1: Anything Goes
