April Showers Blog Hop Day 2





April showers bring May flowers!  Welcome to day 2 of the Spring Blog Hop!  You should be arriving from Leah's Card Designs.  If you just happened to come across my blog and would like to start back at the beginning of the hop, please go to Kathryn's blog - Creations with Kathryn
Both the background patterned paper and the double sided paper used for the flower were DCWV. I cut the circles for the flower from the George Cricut cartridge at 2 1/2" each and then folded in the edges to create the petals, adding a little adhesive to hold them.  The button is from my stash and the stamped sentiment is from the My Creative Time Polka Dot Surprise stamp set. 



Blog candy today is some fun flower embellishments by Doodlebug, Making Memories and K&Company.



To be eligible for a chance to win the blog candy:
