Lack of Colors, Lots of Meaning!

I have a friend who means the world to me. We've been friends for 49 years and the only school we've gone to together is the school of hard knocks.  I made this card for her today just to let her know I love everything about her.

I got my inspiration from three challenges:

Paper Craft Crew Tic Tac Toe Challenge #245. Play along at

All products are Stampin' Up. The stamp set I chose for my flowers and leaves was Secret Garden. My card base is Smoky Slate; the leaves, flowers and sentiment are Old Olive. (The sentiment came from the April 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit.) The flower centers are Old Olive enamel dots. The Whisper White square was die cut from Stitched Shape Framelits. The flowers and leaves were die cut from the Secret Garden Framelits. The column I chose for my tic-tac-toe is the center column, down. 

I think I'm getting to like CAS cards better now. Thanks for looking.
