Middle of the night craftiness!

Talk about waiting for the last minute! My mom's birthday is today! Happy birthday mom!
I had some back problems this week and with the new job and everything I really got caught up with stuff, well I hadn't made my mom a birthday card. So lastnight after everyone went to bed, I crept into my black hole of an office and whipped this baby up!
It's chocolate brown plain cardstock, I got the polka dot paper from the sale rack at HL, I cut those chocolate brown circles on the Cricut with the Making the Grade cart. The flowers are Prima and some Costco centers. I recycled an old card for the inside greeting and ta-da. Presto!

Also I hadn't posted this layout yet. It's a pretty simple one of some dolphin pics. Pink paper, some torn strips and flowers.

I used the front of the paper (flowers) for the strips and the back (stripes) for the matting and details like the arrows. The flowers are primas topped with a button center.
These stickers are like little stamps with the scallopped edges, cute! They matched so good I couldn't resist.

Let me know what's been going on in your world! I've been out of the loop! I'll be blog hopping today and this weekend! Happy crafting!
