~This Weeks Challenge~
May Flowers
Create a project that uses flowers

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used.

For me, Spring truly is represented by flowers :) When I see the tulips finally poking through the ground, ready to open up, I know Spring is here! We have had a very long winter here in Alberta, Canada, and just two weeks ago a full weekend of snow.  I am ready for warmer weather to be sure.  I noticed some flowers ready to bloom outside my window today, but the best thing about Spring is the first dandelion of the season, brought in by my 2 year old, who handed me this little yellow flower saying "a flower for you, mommy".  I wouldn't trade that for anything!

For my project this week I used the Bloom Cricut cartridge to create a birthday card.  I created a background by shading watercolour pencils over watercolour paper and then painting with a waterbrush to blend the colours together.  I layered the cuts for the trellis and vine with flowers over top. The stamped sentiment is from CTMH.

 I painted the butterflies, cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge, and then drew on flutter lines with a black pen.

Inside, I cut out Celebrate Spring from the Bloom cartridge and cut off the 'Spring' part of the die cut.
