April Showers-May Flowers

I know it's the dreaded Monday, but hey, it's also the start of a great new challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2!! Our hostess today is the wonderful DT Sister Melanie. She has challenged us to make a project using flowers from any Cricut Cartridge. I decided to use my much neglected April Showers cartridge to make my card. I was going to make an A2 card, but I cut my watering can and flowers to big. So I opted for a 6x6 card instead. I'm glad I did. I decided to pull out my Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Ovals and Scalloped Ovals Large, and cut this great base to put my cuts on and layers for the inside. I popped up my base. I cut the watering can and flowers at 2.50 inches. The flowers can be found at the # 29 & 39 spots on the overlay and the flowers are at the #22 & 32 spots. I also cut an extra of the base piece for the watering can so I could pop it up and put my flowers between the layers. I then popped it up on the base piece. I added some faux half pearls from Recollections. I also embossed the flower stems using Cutterbug Bird Call embossing folder and the flowers with the Polka Dots folder. The sentiment tag is from My Craft Spot as is the sentiment that is stamped on the tag. The tag is from the Tiny Tags stamp set and the sentiment is from the Tiny Tags 2 set. The bg paper is from Echo Park-Sweet Day 6x6 pad. I finished off the front with some seam binding that I dyed and crinkled.
Head on over to Bitten By The Bug 2 and check out what my DT Sister's have created for some inspiration. Awesomeness for sure!! While you are there check out the rules to our challenges on the sidebar. Then head on to your crafty space and create a new project using flowers from any Cricut Cartridge!! You have until Sunday, May 19th to link. Can't wait to see what you make!! Hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)
