BBTB2: Happy Birthday Challenge - Flowers Make Me Smile

Hi All,   It's been a few weeks since I've posted.   Just family stuff getting in the way.  I am not really happy with today's blog entry, but at least I was able to find time to get my Cricut Explore running again.  My mojo is definitely not back.  Perhaps it was the background paper - I am trying to use up older papers and I thought this looked similar to the inspiration card.   I saw this wonderful card by Wendy Cranford, a Stampin' Up Demonstrator, on her YouTube Channel and thought I could reproduce it using my Explore.   Here is the link to her video HERE.  It was an easy card to put together, but different in some ways.   I used the following cartridges:

Flower:  Bits and Pieces
Leaf: Create a Critter
Tag:  Sentimentals
Stamp by: Stamps of Life
Sequins and Stickles for added bling

This week at Bitten By the Bug2 our challenge has a fun theme:  Birthdays!   That leaves the possibilities endless.  Come join in the fun and challenge yourself and link up a birthday project to the Linky.
