Bloomin' Bling Sketch to die (cut) for!

I am having fun getting comfortable with my cricut expression.  My most used cartridge is Accent Essentials.  It is so easy to cut circles and flower-shapes of any size!  You may know that I get excited when I use scraps to create a card.  I have just a small amount of these coordinating patterned ribbons...enough to make one more card.  I want to use it up, so I went in search of inspiration.  I found this sketch at Die Cuttin' Divas (I flipped the sketch and moved the sentiment to the center...I hope that counts!)  I cut the base card as a flower shape for Allsorts challenge blog   "Blooming Blossoms."  I added the bling (Say it in Studs) for Charisma Cardz challenge "Bling & Sparkles."

Other supplies:
Cuttlebug Spots & Dots embossing folder
SU butterflies embosslit, whisper white cs and chocolate chip cs
Bazzill card stock (orange)
Dashes, Dots & Checks ribbon (Michael's)

You amaze me to no end that you can come up with a card for all these challenges... and such a pretty one! I'm impressed! Would love to get a Cricut, but the Penmaker bought me a Vagabond. Maybe someday!
Have a Happy Day!
