Spring Flowers! BBTB2 Challenge

Hello my crafty friends, I hope your Monday is off to a good start. Not sure where the weekend went, but then I'm never sure where the weeks go! lol I'd like to thank everyone for the lovely comments on my previous post. They sure do make my day and I appreciate your taking the time and  visiting me. 

 Well since it is Monday, it is time for another BBTB2 challenge. Our sweet and talented design team sister, Pam has issued the challenge of spring flowers. Well it IS officially spring, and I'm ready to see some spring flowers, so this is going to be a great challenge. I cased my card from Pinterest, although mine isn't close to being as pretty as the one from Pinterest, I still like it. Got to love Pinterest. I used Art Philosophy for my sentiment mat, the flourishes, and for my rolled flowers.  The border under my mat is the Threading Water punch-I think. But it doesn't show much, so not sure why I bothered with a border. lol  My leaves are a SU die. I finished with some clear gems in the flowers and on the mat. The happy birthday stamp is from CTMH, I believe the Art Philosophy bundle. So now it is your turn! Rules are basic and simple, no back dating and use your Cricut. How much easier can it get than that?! I can't wait to see what you all come up with and if you need some inspiration, look no farther than my design team sisters. They have some awesome projects to inspire you. Thanks for stopping by today and I hope to see you again real soon. Crafty hugs, Brenda

Loving this colorway that you chose. Very springlike indeed. That background papear is so pretty, and the die cut is most elegant for your sentiment. Those flowers are gorgeous. If you can't have spring outside, at least your pretty card brings some spring to you. TFS & Hugs
