Cutting Edge challenge + SSS spots & dots

Hi there, back again today!  I created this card for the Cutting Edge challenge #4 and will also link to the SSS Wednesday Challenge for Spots and Dots.  
Isn't it odd that on some days the Mojo is running wild and others...well, let's just say that the trash receptacle gets a lot of action. 
I received an order of goodies last week while I was away (had to whisk the little box upstairs while darling hubby was pre occupied with other thing) and two of the items that I ordered were these Memory Box Eva Stem and Straight Talk dies that I cut out with chartreuse cs and I layered them.  The little blossoms are a NBUS item too from the same order, also Memory Box.  Teeny little hydrangea blooms, so, so sweet!  I love these new items.  The birthday die cut is PTI and I inlaid into the kraft cs.  I added dots of red and black cs instead of sequins above the sentiment and also black spots to the flower centers, so they are magically not hydrangeas any longer ;)  I think the cs gives a little more of an organic feel.
I created several other kraft and red and black cards for my card stash.  Here is one of them.
Thanks as always for stopping by!  I really     appreciate it!
