Flower Friendship Card

Finally, I incorporated some Cricut flowers that weren't bulky on a card.  For this card, I used the Cricut Accent Essentials Cartridge and also the Once Upon A Princess Cartridge.
The card base is cut from a dark ivory cardstock and is a standard A2 size card.
The patterned paper mats are both made by K & Company and come from The Best of K & Company paperstack.  The blue polka dot mat measures 5 1/4" x 4" while the green flower mat measures 5" x 3 3/4".
The tag is cut from the Once Upon a Princess Cricut cartridge and the cut is found on p. 24 under the tag function.  The dark ivory tag measures 2 1/2" and the blue polka dot mat measures 2 3/4". The sentiment is from Stampin' Up Occasional Quotes set.
The flowers are from the Accent Essentials Cricut Cartridge and the cut is found on p. 55 under Accent 24  shift.  One flower was cut at 1 1/4", 2 @ 1", and 3 at 3/4". They were layers and curved slightly.  I added a pearl bling to each. This paper was in my stash from before and also is from the K & Company line and the bling I've had for years!!!
I left the inside blank for the receiver to write whatever they wanted to.
I entered this card in the following challenges:
