Flower's Of The Month Jan.-June ~ Double D

Hello everyone.  Double D Challenges is starting a new challenge today
and the theme is 
Flowers of the Month - January thru June

January: Carnations or Snowdrops
February: Violets or Primrose
March: Daffodils, Jonquils or Narcissus
April: Daisy, Sweet Pea or Gerber Daisy
May: Lily of the Valley or Hawthorne
June: Rose or Honeysuckle

I don't know what this Tim Holtz Bloom from Sizzix Colorize is supposed to be, but for this challenge, I'm calling it a carnation for the month of January.  

I used Floral Smooth Cardstock for layering the flowers and leaves.  The colors coordinate perfectly and all the colors are in one pack, except for the yellow which is from the Warms Smooth Cardstock Collection.

Here's the mood board:

Here's what you could win when you play along:
