I made this card for my mum for Mother's Day and she had it a couple of days early as she went away to Maderia on holiday on Saturday so this way her flowers wont have wilted by the time she gets back!  She was very pleased with them and I really enjoyed making this one.  Sorry it is a bit picture heavy.  I have used Coredinations cs in pink and green and the paper is from First Edition. I found the instruction in a copy of  Creativity Magazine and they were really easy to follow.  I used narrow coloured lolly sticks (found 'em in the back of a crafting cupboard!) and the flowers have all been cut on the Cricut using the Bloom cartridge.  Added in some feather and gem stem and a pearl stem for some added texture.

The next 2 pictures show a close up of the flowers and how it looks closed and ready to post.
