Card 47- Entry for Card Challenge and New Flower Technique

Since my hands are still mostly out of commission, I had a lot of help from my daughter to make this card.  With all the time I've had, i've been scoping out the blogs for ideas.  I came across a great challenge blog called 365 Card Challenge.  The idea is to scrap a card every day and every day there new parameters for the card.  All this week, for instance, the cards have been white space sketches. 

Now I am not a card maker really. I have preferred doing layouts...but these talented ladies have so many wonderful designs that I just had to wade in,  Also I want to use my new Cricut Expression and making cards will be a great learning avenue. I'm also challenging myself to go back and complete the first 46 cards.  I think I can use up a lot of my stash this way and with an impending move, cards don't take the time I spend on layouts. And I have another goal, to reconnect with old friends and family, I've kind of been a hermit the last few years.

Today's card sketch was a white space with 3 diagonal circles:

Here is my version:
The flowers were made using a technique from my minds eye.
