Greetings!

I am running right down to the wire to get a post for the weekly Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge. It is #41 and we are to make a handmade flower. I wanted to use my new set again called Greet The Day With Gerber, so I decided on a CAS card. I just love the sentiments that are included in these gorgeous sets
My card base is Little Boy Blue, Pure Luxury card stock, layered with Granola from Basic grey. I used scraps of Soft Suede from SU! an Soft Sand PL from Gina K. Designs to frame my sentiment. I wrapped the panel with twine. For my flower, I punched two colors of solid from the Granola collection and secured the center with an antique button of flying birds.

Thanks for stopping by, and I am off to work! TGIF!
