Thank You Butterfly!

Hello and thank you so much for visiting me, I really appreciate it lots.  A CAS card today.  It really was very simple to make and its one of my favourites ever!




Unfortunately the photograph doesn't show the true crispness of the image or the lovely vivid pink of the card - I just  couldn't seem to get a better photo.  I made the top folding A6 card blank from a gorgeous vivid pink card from my stash and, using my Misti and black Versafine ink, I stamped just half of the awesome Impression Obsession L13416 butterfly.  As its a huge stamp, I used the Misti so I could stamp it several times to make sure I got a good impression.  I then added the Visible Image sentiment and that was it!  I was going to add splatters or sequins or something but I just loved it as it is and out of all the cards I have ever made, this was probably the most simple and my absolute favourite!  I had to make several, with and without sentiments, and variations too!

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge - One Layer and/or the colour Ultra Pink.
Penny Black and More - Something New - The Butterfly Stamp is new and never before used.
Time Out Challenges - Thankful.
Try It On A Tuesday - My Favourite Things.  Butterflies are definitely one of my most favourite things!
Stamploration CAS Challenge - CAS optional colour twist of Silver



Thank you again for visiting me.  This is a very short post as I am off for coffee with a friend shortly.
Take care.  Christine xxx

I love it too!Just half of that big butterfly is the perfect amount to show on your card - stunning! I also have been struggling to photograph a pink card base today - with my eye it's pink, with my camera it's red!
