SCRAPS CARD---using accent essentials

i have been browsing the cricut forum here and there after not been around for almost a year or so. there are so many venues for inspiration i just never made time to be around again. 
last night i found a challenge, very easy challenge: use a cricut flower.
 here is what they ask:
 "our challenge is called"April Showers Brings Us Flowers" so you are to create a card, layout, or papercraft project that contains at least one Cricut cut flower. This is a very easy challenge and we hope that many of our friends will enter. This challenge will start today and run through Saturday, April 14 till 9 pm eastern time. Please no backlinks. Enter as many times as you like, but link each project separately. Now take a look at what our talented design team created to give you some inspiration."

My Flower Card
4.25 x 5.5
this card is made totally of scraps. the flower i had in my "cuts for another day" stash and it is from accent essentials. the small flower i really do not remember but i know is from another cricut cart. the papers are from k&co---an old box i purchased a WHILE ago and it has the most beautiful patterned papers ever. I do like k&co a lot but i do not buy much anymore because i have so much of it, lol.

even the ribbon knot is a scrap. hehe

i will add a sentiment when i need to use it

---i have those day where i just want to use scraps---
and enter challenges and i am on one of those stages, lol.
maybe next week i will be doing something else. who knows!

  8. Very pretty Agnes.
    Although it is a simple design, it inspires me and reminds me that I can craft and that it does not have to be fancy to bring a smile.


Have a fun day!!!
