A Laugh Is A Smile That Bursts!!

Hi everyone! Happy Saturday!!

Here is my card for today's sketch challenge at The Sweet Stop, SSS44!! Today's sketch is a Sketch With A Spin...to use flowers!!!

For my card, I started with a piece of Girl Friday patterned paper from Cosmo Cricket. I then picked some crocheted flowers that my mom made (thanks Mom!!!), that matched the paper.

I added a button to the center of each flower, and the sentiment, "A laugh is a smile that bursts" is from Flowers of Happiness by There She Goes.
