Happy Birthday Flowers

I'm still feeling like spring should be here right about now... so with that inspiration, this birthday card came together pretty easily because of some fun Making Memories paper and some different challenges. For the watering can, I used the Walk in my Garden cartridge and for the flowers and leaves, the Doodlecharms cartridge. Some little heart punches framed the sentiment nicely too.

I used a couple of different embossing folders for the centers of the flowers and the brown Bazzill cardstock.
The Coredinations gemstones paper gave the watering can that fun shimmery look.

Now for the challenges:

Mojo Monday - use their great sketch
Birthday Sundaes - anything birthday
Fantabulous Cricut - birthday
More Than Favors - use Doodlecharms
Linda's Creativity - use a punch
Die Cuttin' Divas - use a garden Cricut cut
Simon Says Stamp - girlie or Mother's Day

Hope you're all having a fantastic day!
