Spring Thank You Card for CCC

Good Morning :) I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! I sure did, lots of crafting, catching up on blogs, emails and facebook and lots of resting too. Today's card is for the Creative Cutting Challenge Spring theme challenge:
When I think of spring I think of the flowers that are starting to bloom, it's always nice to see the crocus peak out from the snow to show there beautiful color. What better way to say Thank You than with a Bouquet/Vase of pretty flowers. This is one of Creative Point's newest svg files:
Build A Bouquet
 You got all the fixins for a really cute bouquet. It sized down perfectly for a card front too. I thought a thank you would be a good way to use this card.
 I tried something new in my Silhouette program, by duplicating the vase and then doing a release compound path you then get the solid image. So I used that solid image to cut some vellum to represent water in the vase :) I really like how it came out and it's good to learn something new. I used the orange ribbon in my current counterfeit kit with some sequins and a SU Teeny Tiny Wishes set for the sentiment and the banner is from the Echo Park Sweet Day sticker sheet.
Love that you can use all kinds of scraps to make the flowers for the stems. Various papers from this month's counterfeit kit. I popped up the flower heads with foam tape and added a pink sequin to the one flower's center.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope to see your creation over at Creative Cutting Challenge here are the details of the challenge:
