Cricut Cartridge Chaos Challenge

Two Scraptastic Gals Week #15  CCCC - Cricut Cartridge Chaos Challenge is to create a project using the Cricut Cartridge "A Child's Year".  I went through the book for this cartridge but nothing was coming to me... Then I found this Teapot...
 This is the first cut out I have done on the cricut of a complete card.  I was not able to do it on my Cricut Create because it was too small, but now I have the Cricut Expression! (It's not the new one though)

I'm not sure how well it shows up, but both butterflies are glittered (and the circles are in the center of the flowers). The flowers are actually the top of a tag that inserts into the flower pot.
