Octagon flowers

It's Monday and it's a yucky Monday here weather wise. It's much cooler today and rainy.

The card for today is one I made for last Monday's color challenge and Thursday's sketch challenge on StampTV. The color challenge was to use Banana, Blush and Celery with any neutral color(s). My neutral is Ivory Pure Luxury. The Thursday sketch challenge was CAS (Clean and Simple).
Can you tell what kind of nesties I used for the flowers?
They are the new scalloped large octagons. Pretty cool huh? They look so cute as flowers along with the background, leaves, stems and grass from Gina's Bold Flower which is part of the Floral Frenzy kit. The center of the flowers are glitter dots, another thing from my new stash. For the background of the card I embossed SU's top note using my cuttlebug.
the sentiment is cut using spellbinder's labels. I cut one end straight to line up with the edge of the card and put a couple of dot from a package of eyelet rain dots at the end instead of using metal brads, which I do not even know if I have brads small enough that I could have used instead of the dots.
I finished off the card with the celery ribbon on top.

I hope your Monday is not a dreary one, but one full of sunshine and happiness!

sorry it's a bad day as I am 75 degrees with high winds here in Texas at 9:20 pm But we are expecting 60 mph winds possible hail by morning. So I don't know which is better? Wisconsin or Texas...ever been here? I love your card today. I don't have nesties but I have to get some one day. I love what you do with them.. Thanks for sharing.
