CASology Week 286: BUTTERFLY

Welcome to Week 286 at CASology!

I'm anticipating a very full and beautiful gallery this week! My biggest challenge was deciding which of my butterfly stamps and dies was going to be used. In the end, this Poppystamps Princess Butterfly die earned the front & center spot on my card.

Distress inks were used as watercolors to create a background for the die cut. The white panel is popped up over the watercolor panel, with the butterfly adhered only at the center, allowing the wings to move freely. An Avery Elle sentiment finishes off this card.

The design team has gorgeous cards to help inspire you!

We are looking forward to seeing how BUTTERFLY inspires you - just remember to keep it Clean & Simple! You have until 9 AM Monday (CMT) to link your card to the CASology blog (please note, the deadline has moved up a couple of hours!).

I'm also linking this card to the Wednesday Challenge at Simon Says Stamp where Simon Says Anything Goes and Seize the Birthday in the Anything Goes category.
