Birthday Blooms

I recently bought the Cricut Sampler cartridge and was eager to use it. The cartridge has a few cuts from several different cartridges, so it's a fun mix. I made a quick birthday card to try it out.

I cut the watering can and added the sunflowers to it. A little ribbon and buttons from my stash finished it off.
Here is the inside:

DL.Art: Flowers
Simply Create Too: Anything goes
Ribbon Carousel: Celebrations
Glitter n Sparkle: Ribbon
Bitten by the Bug 2: Flowers
Pause Dream Enjoy: Happy ___
