It's a birthday flower bouquet! I used my Imagine and the Audrey pattern cartridge along with flowers from the Forever Young Cricut cartridge. The leaves are from Flower Shoppe, the cupcake and butterflies are from the inherent images on the Imagine and the sentiment is from Imagine More Cards.
I used a painted metal bucket from the dollar spot at Target that was in my stash. I put a piece of floral foam into the bucket, making sure it was about an inch from the top.
I painted some bamboo skewers with green craft paint. I just used my fingers to rub it on then let them dry.
The flowers, butterflies and cupcake are cut at 3" and the smaller center layer for the flowers is cut at 1.2 to 1.6" I used hot glue to glue the centers to the larger flower, then glued a matching button on the center. I flipped the flowers over and glued the blunt end of the skewer to the middle of the flower, then glued another small center layer over the ugly end on the back to pretty it up a bit. Here's the back:
His teacher loved the bouquet! The kids did too. Then I found out that his classroom's Teacher's Aide is having a birthday this week..... Her favorite color is purple....
