Exploring Cricut - April Showers Bring May Flowers

Hello! It's Monday and you know what that means; Exploring Cricut has a new challenge today. You are to create a card, layout or project including a flower with your Cricut. We had a beautiful weekend here and my husband just informed me that it might rain and snow tonight and tomorrow. Really? I for one am ready for warmer weather. I hope the weatherman is wrong. 

When I created this card I was thinking of warm sunny days and picnics. I guess I will have to keep thinking about them for awhile:)



Recipe:
A2 card base Kraft paper
Red Gingham Mat Plantin SchoolBook 4.55"
Blue Scallop Mat - Elegant Edges 3"
"Thank You" - Gypsy Wanderings 2.81" (width)
Flowers - Walk In My Garden .97"
Ribbon, Black ink, Yellow Stickles, Clear gems

Hope you decide to join in! Check out my DT sisters for great inspiration:) Winners will be drawn this Saturday.

Thanks for stopping by!

The red gingham paper and the pretty flowers makes me feel like a summer picnic!

My poor flowers got frostbite yesterday-they don't look so good :( This weather is crazy-frost at the end of April is just not cool!!!! I am dying to get out and plant my flowerpots, but am really glad I decided to wait another week or two.
