Speedy The Cat's Friends Challenge #23 Happy Anniversary

The last words I read, when I was checking out the weekly challenge, over at Mark's Finest Paper Blog, was to have fun. That is exactly what I set out to do! When I got there, I realized that they are celebrating the 1 year anniversary of Mark's Finest Paper! How exciting is that? The challenge they came up with for this celebration, was Buttons and Bows. The best part, is that one in every 10 cards will be a winner!!!!! How do you like that? Please go check it out and leave them some happy wishes!

My card stars with a base of Creme De Menthe Pure Luxury card stock. My DP is from ATD called Under The Tree. I added half of a paper doily for texture, and then wrapped it with a big red and white gingham bow. My DD shared some cool felt flowers with me this past weekend, and I added some vintage buttons threaded with embroidery floss. There are some fern like punches used for leaves. My sentiment is from MFP set called Cupcake Birthday, and is stamped on layered SU! punches. This party would not be complete without Speedy The Cat, so I used a bigger version from my Tropical Vacation set.

As you can see from my side photo, I am trying to dress up my insides more, The inside sentiment is It's Time To Party! That is also found on the Cupcake Birthday set.

Happy Anniversary, and may you have many more wonderful years to share with us!
