Cricut Spring Flower Thank you card

Hello, friends!

Today, I am hosting the challenge over at Bitten By the Bug and I chose bulb flowers as a theme. This should come as no surprise to those of you who have been following this blog for any amount of time. I love flowers and especially love spring bulb flowers. There are few things that make me happier than a flower bed full of daffodils, tulips, or irises! Even when I was a little girl, I was known as a flower thief. People would come knocking on our door telling my mom that I picked several flowers out of their beds. Stupid bunch of tattle tales ;-)

To make this card, I used the Spring Fling and Anna's Lace Cards and Embellishments cartridges. Also, you will notice the pen outlines on the cuts. Those were done using the cricut pens and the Explore.

If you have a Cricut Explore, here is the file: Cricut Spring Flower Thank you card

If you do not, simply cut the iris out at 4" and the frame out at 4 3/4".

Omg Miss Melanie What a Gorgeous card!! Love your Iris it is so pretty and that frame is so beautiful!! You sure did a super outstanding creative job using CDS and your color palate is awesome...Love your story that's so cute I could picture you picking the flowers.....and when the neighbors came a knockin' your mom probably had to control herself from laughing. Girl "The Princess of Flowers" definitely grew into one beautiful You....and now you are "The Queen of Flowers"!! Great story!!
