Mother's Day Lattice Look Flowers Card

Created this card since I was inspired by a lattice looking flower card I saw by Michelle P. and you can see her card by clicking here. Michelle P. used Paper Lace Cricut cartridge which I have but I decided to use Paper Lace 2 Cricut cartridge.

I made the card to be a shaped Mother's Day card using Kraft cardstock for the base. Used blue Stampin' UP sentiment tag (with faux stitching). Stamped SU sentiment. Used layers (green, white& yellow). Used SU Itty Bitty Shapes punch to punch white centers of flowers. Added stickles to centers of flowers. Added a gem for add'l sparkle.

Supplies List
Cricut cartridge: Paper Lace 2 4" Flower1Lace2, $ 1/2" layer,
   4 3/4" shaped card using Gypsy
gem: the Paper Studio His & Hers
