Perfect Sentiments Anniversary Challenge 53D - Birds & Blooms

Welcome back for the final day of celebration this week!  Yep, Perfect Sentiments is a whole year old!  If you were here on Tuesday for the latest Creative Card Crew challenge, you got a sneak peek at this card...We have four fun challenges planned for you that we spread out over the last few days. We have sponsors who have donated generous prizes for each challenge and since we are doing this blog hop style, there are hidden prizes along the way. The good news is you will have 3 full weeks to complete all the challenges and blog hops. There will also be a grand prize that you will be eligible for if you complete all the challenges! You can see the Grand Prize and add you name to the inlinkz here once your complete all four of the challenges.  We are all looking forward to seeing what you are inspired to create!  Remember the deadline to complete and link up your challenges is 6pm EST on October 30th.

The Challenge today is to create a card with a sentiment for the occasion of your choice.
The Twist:  Use a bird or blooms (or both) on your card!
