MPS is doing a birthday challenge and I had a card I was planning on making so the two just happen to coincide! How lucky for me, means I won't have to stay up late completing it the night before I want to give it to her. LOL

I had an idea that I wanted to make a pot of flowers, so then I did a search to get some extra inspiration and then had to try this card I found it was positively cute and just slightly off from what I had intended in the first place. LOL

Here are some of the cards that inspired mine. Flower Pot Pocket Card
I used WIMG for all the cuts, and MPS stamp sets Everyday Occasions & Simply Sweet Occasions. My idea was to make a normal card with the fold at the top which would mean the flowers would cover the back as the card opens. My hubby didn't think that would work very well. After my research of what is out there I decided to do the pot card with the flower insert. My variation was to keep my card idea and use it to help get it to stand on it's own.

I adapted it for what I wanted, plus I used the cricut cartridge and most of what I saw didn't use the cricut for the pot. I know this because I found this tutorial on making the pot of flowers here: Flower Pot Card Tutorial

Well this is my entry for Robyn's challenge. Robyn if you see this I hope your birthday was everything you wanted and a yummy cupcake!
