Flower Fun!

Hello, my friends!
Guess what I got for my birthday? I received a Cricut Expression 2! Woohoo!! So today I am posting my first Cricut project!
The challenge at Digi Darla's this week is "How does your garden grow?" and they want to see lots of flowers. It was the perfect inspiration to play with my new toy! I picked this fun shape that looks like a flower. Then I cut some rolled flowers too. I used floral paper, punched the little flowers, and used this sweet Digi Darla image called Flower Girl! I think I have the flower thing covered! lol
I also wanted to join in at Twist of Faith Card Challenge again this week. Their challenge is "Birthdays", so I added a Happy Birthday to the inside of my card. I didn't bother to take a picture of it because it's just a simple stamp with no other embellishments.
There you have it! I better warn you that you'll be seeing LOTS of Cricut projects in the future. I love my Slice, and will continue to use it, but now I can go BIGGER with my designs!
Much JOY to all of you! :o)

Papers: Making Memories - English Garden;

Cricut Cartridges: Flower Shoppe, Elegant Edges;
