A PreSchool Grad - CFC #103

Our sweet five year-old granddaughter is graduating preschool today. She is very excited, and yes, we are VERY proud of her.  So off to kindergarten she goes in the fall, which means I will be losing my half-day of 1:1 Nana time with her :(   How quickly they grow up!
Our granddaughter's favorite snuggle toy is a monkey, which was perfect for using the monkey from PTI's Tremendous Treats: Birthday.
I made her card using a CAS approach, which is not my usual style.  I desperately wanted to add a little bird or birdhouse in the tree or clouds in the background, but resisted.
(Full disclosure: I cased one of my favorite stamp artists Kristii Lockhart's CAS card here.)

I am also entering this card in this week's CAS-ual Friday challenge here. This is the first time I've entered this challenge, but am thinking I will make this a weekly goal, just to improve my CAS skills.

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Stamps: Tremendous Treats Birthday (and dies), Little Bitty Bird, Tag-It's #4
Cardstock, PP and Ink: Papertrey Ink
Other: PTI Countdown Details dies; Glossy Accents
