Outlines Easter Challenge

I hope I get this in on time!  Busy weekend!  This week the challenge at Outlines Rubber Stamps is to make an Easter card using their stamps.  So, again hoping to add soon to my collection, I used my Cricut Expression to help me out.  The cartridge I used was Paper Lace 2.   I cut the background from watercolor paper and applied a watercolor wash in shades of blue, green, and yellow.  Then I cut the daisy design from the Cricut in green and layered that on top.  I then cut an additional daisy design in white card, but 1" larger (necessary to accommodate the 1" punch).  I cut out one medallion from the white card and layered it on top of the green.  I then stamped Outlines B789 on white card with green marker, just the sentiment, leaving out the dot border.  I used a 1" circle punch to cut out the sentiment and lightly colored it with a yellow ink pad.  I then layered the circle on the white flower.  Lastly I stamped the butterfly square E519 on white card, colored the butterfly with green and yellow marker and inkpad and popped it up on the design.  The whole ensemble was layered onto a folded 5 1/2" green card.  I must still be seeing g-r-e-e-e-e-e-n from St. Patrick's Day!  Here is the link to the challenge blog at Outlines:
