Cheery spring

For this card I used dies and a technique I do not recall using before.  The flowers/stems are part of the Cuttlebug Olivia set I have had for a LONG time  I used pattern paper (from AMuse) cut two pieces to make longer stems.  For the flowers I uaed both pattern and solid cs, wich a sparkly gem center.  The HB is Sizzix, and the circles are Spellbinders Exquisite Circles.
Note:  Does any one use those circles?  I like the look, but have trouble figuring out how to layer them.  I also find them labor intensive - some of the tiny pieces do not punch completely - and a lot of items stick to the die - I use a pin to remove them, but that is lots of poking!
Colors - yellows, grass green, light blues:
Spots(bg paper, green leaves, lots of dots on the die cut!):
Technique - using piecing (pattern papers) to create flowers):
