April Showers Bring May Flowers

Happy Monday everyone!!  It is challenge day over at Exploring Cricut.  We have a great challenge for you today! We are showcasing FLOWERS.  Here is what I came up with:


This is a regular A2 size card.  The top layer is 4x5 1/4.  I cut the circles out from George and Basic Shapes and embossed in with my Swiss Dots embossing folder.  The flowers are from Pooh and Friends - their icon layer has some great cuts!  They are adhered to the bottom layer of the card, and I used foam tape to give the top layer some dimension.  The paper is mostly from Michaels, though I used some SU too.  The ribobn is from Michaels.  My beautiful sentiment is from Cardz TV Stamps "Think Spring".  You can find all of Mary's amazing stamps HERE.  



Be sure to swing by Exploring Cricut and play along with us, you could win a great prize!  I can't wait to see what you find on your cartridges to inspire us.  Don't forget that there are new projects to inspire you every day on the blog, created by our amazing and talented Design Team.  I always love seeing what they create.
