Spring has Sprung (I am making my own flower garden)

It is really springtime here in Missouri my spring bulbs are blooming and some are already spent for the year. My yellow tulips and daffodils inspired this thank you card.

I used a Martha Stewart punch on the bottom of the card but  made the flowers using my cricut, cutting three shapes of flowers in three coordinating yellow papers.

Can you guess what I did for the centers?

Here is a close up

Michael's was clearance the Martha Stewart glass micro beads so I bought the copper and some clear. I used a round brad as the base and adhered a thick glue dot to it then  proceeded to push the micro beads into the glue dot. They are staying on. I'm trying a couple of other techniques and will let you know what works the best. I just loved these beads they give an added dimension to the flowers. Off to grow (craft)some more flowers. Ta Ta for now.


  1. Carrie... WOW!!! I love the glass beads in the flower centers! They're amazing!
