Artfully Sent Sympathy Card for Bitten by the Bug 2

My new Cricut Explore and I are becoming better acquainted and I'm having fun learning how to do new things.  While making this card I taught myself how to "attach" an element from a different cartridge and "draw" it rather than cut it. (Initially I tried to "weld" and "slice" the greeting but I didn't like how it looked when it was cut).

Here's a second copy with some sparkles added as flower centers:
