Happy Mother's Day - Flower Pot Slider

I started out making this as a shape card w/ the flowers sliding out. I had made a cupcake slider (on a base) & I liked this for the flowerpot too. I find that it helps me to keep from putting the flowers up too high, (I want it to fit into a regular envie.) & this keeps them within the correct frame.
These 2 cards are for my mom & grandmother. I am also entering this into Tracy's (Craft Junkie Too) Mother's Day Post and Cuttlebug Spot Challenge #4. So click on over HERE to check out every one's projects.
Gypsy to design & cut w/ Cricut
Flowerpot is from Walk In My Garden (blackout, welded at the bottom & edges glued) Flowerpot pieces were also cut in patterned paper & layered to the front of the blackout pot. The rim was embossed using the Cuttlebug & Floral Screen & Paisley folders.
Tag was cut using the Tags, Bags, Boxes, & More cart.
The slider & base were cut from George & Basic Shapes cart.
Flowers are from Sweet Treats, Accent Essentials, & Forever Young carts. They were made using the wet & scrunch method. I then painted them with a mixture of Pearl Ex, Gum Arabic, & water.
Inked all edges & embossed pieces before assembling. Added tag with ribbon tied around one of the flowers.
