Breast Wishes Bouquet!

I am super excited to share the bouquet of flowers I made for a dear friend who just went through a mastectomy. I have to say she is so strong and is carrying so much hope and well she is just wonderful and today the good news is no chemo or radiation at this time so !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Anyways I wanted to make her a fun gift and decided on fun paper flowers. I wanted the centers to feature the sentiments from the Breast Wishes set by Pink By Design...BUT I did not have this set and it was out of stock..BUT fail me not a wonderful member of the Cricut Circle, Karen, sent me a bunch of circles with the stamped images so I could complete my project on time!!
My favorite stamp from the set
I just cut the sunflower layer from Hello Kitty Greetings in several sizes that I knew would fit the circles I had and added the centers. After applying the center I used a glue gun and large adhesive dots to put the flowers on the sticks and place them into a foam center inside my pink bucket!
I wanted a simple image for the bucket and wen searching found the perfect cut on Gypsy Wanderings. The word hope with a simple flower embellishment was just what I needed. Add a touch of pink bling and I was all set.
I wanted to give her some little treats as well so I used some of my extra flowers and added them to a little gift bag for the chocolate yummies.
I am excited that this is getting linked-up to the Pink Cricut What are You Up to Link Party seeing as I used Pink By Design Stamps!! Also as this was a gift for a loved one I am entering it into the Circle Monthly Challenge as well Thanks again Karen and to all those Survivors out there...YOU ROCK!!
