19 Spring in Air FCCB

It is not my regular week to post for the Design Team for Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog but this project fit the challenge so I decided to add it this week. The challenge this week is "Spring is in the Air"- use a minimum of three flowers on your project. So I will be honest  I am totally addicted to making rolled flowers and made this initial for one of my granddaughters.  So of course I will be making two more now.  I made letters  for  Christmas gifts done in Christmas colors and then made a Valentine wreath in red and pinks.  This I wanted to use Spring Colors.  
Here is the completed letter

The letter starts our like this.  There are a variety of letters 
in wood or  paper mache at any local craft store.
This one was already white but otherwise I would paint the letter white.  
These are the K and Company packs I used. They are double side bright papers.
I used four different center cuts from Flower Shoppe.  
I cut all the flowers at 3 inches and then roll them with a quilling tool.  
I glue them with the glue gun and then add them to the initial.  
I hope you will join us this week for the FCCB challenge- Spring is in the Air- use a minimum of three flowers on your project and link it up to FCCB.   I look forward to seeing what you create.  
Happy Craftin!
I am also entering this in the Cricut Circle Monthly Challenge- Creative Sharing Challenge which is to create some kind of wall decor using at least three colors and two different Cricut cuts.
