Flower Bouquet Birthday Card

I found this paper pack at JoAnn's. It had the most vibrant green which I thought would be perfect for spring. The paper is textured which is always a plus but I didn't realize it wasn't cardstock so cutting it on the Cricut has proven to be a challenge. We all need challenges right?
I created this card for two challenges actually. The Paper and Such Design Blog Sketch Challenge and the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday (use at least 3 flowers). I love sketch challenges because they give you a great place to start and I love my Cricut so why not combine the two?!
I cut the vase and flowers from the Walk in My Garden Cartridge - it has some amazing flowers and is really fun to play with. I layered the flowers and gave a few the pop dot treatment so there is dimension amongst the bouquet.
Here is the sketch...
There's few things better in life than a bouquet of flowers!
