For my card this week I used 'Spring Flowers' and just when I was looking through my nesties deciding on which to use to cut my bunny out the postman arrived with my prize from Enfys aka Going Buggy which was the Cricut Elegant Edges Cartridge so it was unpacked and used in record time. I cut this beautiful frame which did have holes cut out where my gems are but they got kind of lost in all the dots behind. Thanks again Enfys, I am one happy lady.

I cut the flower on my Cricut as well from the Mother's Day cart. The idea of this flower is that it folds in on it's self for posting. I have not posted one yet but will let you know if they work once I know one has been received. I added seed beads to the centre of the flower. I used glossy accents on the flowers in my image and then added a seed bead to the centre of two bigger flowers.
