Sunflowers....

I have to admit that this week has kicked my butt.  I couldn't be happier that today is Friday!  Some weeks are busier than others, and this one was a bit nuts.  Cort has a big fundraiser next Saturday for the Special Olympics Basketball game.  Last night was "media" day.  Channel 5 news, here in Chicago, came to tape a segment on the basketball team. The kids were so excited!  We were home around 9 though, so my girl was tired.  (As was her mama!) 
So I guess what I'm trying to say is, I am really, really, going to enjoy my weekend! ; )
I have another Paper Loft card to share with you today.  The circle card and sunflowers were cuts by Silhouette.  I backed the circles with the Paper Loft pine cone paper. I love that it has kind of a window effect!
The flower centers were popped up and a generous amount of Flower Soft was added to the centers. I added  a sentiment from JustRite, ribbon, and green twine to finish it off. 
I have some exciting news to share with you next week regarding Cortney.  I literally have to keep pinching myself to be sure that this is real.  
I will be back this weekend with more JustRite releases and my big news!

Your card is amazing & gorgeous! I'm a huge sucker for sunflowers, they're one of my favourites. I love how the green string looks like vines:)
