Cruisin' with Creativity

It has been longer than I'd like to admit since I've opened my paper cabinet.  Taxes, children and other commitments have called me away, but today I opened those doors.  Inside my cabinet, I found some paper pieces from my friend Jen and some inspiration over at her blog Jen's Jewel Box.   Since my creative juices have dried up, I decided these pieces would give me a good jump start. 

This 6x6 card is made using the Cruisin' papers from Close To My Heart.  The flowers were cut from Juniper cardstock using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  They were then sanded and curled.  The centers of the flowers are made with button brads.  The sentiment is from the March Stamp of the Month but can be changed to just about anything with this versatile pattern color scheme.
