Happy Card!

I am really excited about the card I'm sharing with you today.  It's so bright and cheery and happy!

I've seen many flowers made using circle punches, so I thought I'd try my hand at it.  Of course, I used my Cricut and not punches, but it works!  I have had one sheet of this striped paper forever and finally decided to use it.  It was hard to cut into it because I like it so much (and want to hoard it), but I managed to pull out that trimmer start cutting.

I layered 3 circles on top of each other with foam dots in between, so they really stood out.  I also put the leaves on using foam dots.  The sentiment is a stamp by Stampendous and the blue border came from Elegant Edges.

I can't wait to make more of these flowers!  I really had fun with them and I think they could be great if I tried mixing patterns and colors on each flower.
