May Day!!!

Hello and Happy Wednesday Everyone! It's the middle of the
week already! YEAA!!! That means the weekend is getting closer! :o)
I have a very busy week going on right now! I'm trying to get a
bunch of cards made for my MIL and today starts my 2 week sale
at the store.... And Tomorrow is my card Swap night and then
Friday is Crop til ya Drop! Soooo, I'm trying to get ready for all these
things... UGH! Can anyone tell that I like having a hectic life? LOL
Don't worry... I'll be fine! This is how I work... It's ALL GOOD! ;o)
Any whoooo... today is Challenge Day over at:

The Challenge is "May Day" make a card
for ANY Occasion
using FLOWERS from any cartridge!
(Reminder: You Must use your CRICUT)

So here is what I came up with......

I'm not gonna lie when I say I LOVE how this turned out!
My inspiration came from the fact that I needed to make
HELLO cards for my MIL! So this one kind of just
came to me while playing around in the Cricut Craft Room!
As you can tell... I used my Imagine! :o)

I added Clear Gems to the centers of the flowers...

I Probably could have tighten this one a little more..,
But all in all I'm really happy with how this turned out!

Of course after making this card.... I realized that I can't
give this card to my MIL! WHY??? Cuz I like it too
much! LOL Just kidding... I can't send it to her because the
flowers are to thick for her to mail out.... Sooo this is mine to
keep! YEAAA!! But I did make her an exact copy except
that I used some flatter flowers, so she could still mail
it off to someone if she'd like too! :o)
