Happy Mother's Day Monday!

Hello blogland!  I hope all the Mother's had as lovely a Mother's Day and I did!  And since it's Monday, it's time to share this week's Cricut Challenge from Simply Scrapping Crafts.  We're still reviewing the features and functions of the Cricut machines, and this week's challenge was to use the Center Pointe Feature.  I have to admit, I've never used this button before and had no idea what to use it for.  But the videos the DT has been sharing has been a good review and I have to tell ya', I was impressed that the Cricut Expression can do that.  After choosing my paper, my idea was to make a few cuts for a Mother's Day card I was making for my Mom.  But after making the cuts I changed my mind about what to make and here's what I came up with:
Whatcha think?  This card took me about 5 minutes to make - I kid you not!  The paper I used was from the DCWV Mariposa stack - I cut one piece of 12x12 in half to make a 6" square card base.  The flower and sentiment were both cut from the Mother's Day 2010 cartridge.  The flower cut actually belongs to a pinwheel and I decided to cut it in 2 different sizes (2 inches and 3 inches), I curled the edges under with the end of a thin paint brush, stacked them all together and used the mini I Am Roses bud to secure everything.  Easy peasy and Happy Mother's Day Mom!  Here's a closer look at the flower:
