Today is my day to post a project for the current challenge from The Lollipop Ladies:
Farewell Cake:

with the optional challenge of Sentiments
I was inspired by the butterflies and the flowers and I did use a combination of sentiments.  Looking at the inspiration picture now, I also realize that I pulled the yellow and green in from the leaves and some of the flowers.  Yesterday was birthday day in our house so this will be one of the thank you cards for the many gifts received.
Now it's time to hop on over to The Lollipop Ladies blog for all the details of the challenge and then get inky and play along!

Brown Sugar #67--anything goes
Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge Blog #2--pick at least 3 of the colors from the photo (I chose the pale yellow, green, dark brown and a little bit of rust on the butterfly and pearls)
There She Goes #233--Thanks/Thanksgiving
Get Inky #17--Thanks/Thanksgiving
Lexi's Creations #104--Thanks/Thanksgiving
Paper Nest Dolls #17--Give Thanks
November Verve Diva Dare--Shape Up!  (use any common shape, I used a circle and a butterfly)
Sweet Stamps #143--Thank you
Scrap Creations--Give Thanks
Tuesday Throwdown--Gratitude
Twist of Faith #63--lots of layers with uplifting sentiment
Word Art Wednesday #106--anything goes with uplifting sentiment
The Stamping Chef #6--Ribbon and Die cuts

Papers: DCWV; PTI Ripe Avocado card stock
