All Things Grow With Love

Another challenge I haven't played in awhile was over at CAS-ual Fridays.  This week I was immediately drawn to the challenge as they were joining forces with one of my other favorites, Clean & Simple FTL.

Some of my sets are neglected and collecting dust so I broke one out this weekend using the Everyday Button Bits for this set.  I wanted to created a sunflower look and saw this color combination in the Card Ideas for Card Makers magazine so I used the leaf petals in the set to create the sunflower look.

I wish I would have done my sentiment a little differently as it looks a bit crammed, but this color combo is one I will be trying again and again.

We had a wonderful Saturday at one of Syd's friends birthday party in which the whole family was invited and we spend the day at the lake having fun swimming, riding the ski-do's and just having a great time with friends.  Looking forward to hanging around the house today, but not looking forward to the mounds of laundry.

Card details:
Stamps: Everyday Button Bits from Papertrey Ink
Cardstock: Trendsetter Blue, Purpilicious, A Blanc Check
Inks: Purpilicious, B00
Embellishments: Liliac Twine from The Twinery (colored with copic), button from Designer Mix from Clear & Simple Stamps
