Guest Designing with CAS Colours & Sketches

Good Morning everyone! Wow! It's been a while and June flew by like a shot didn't it?!

It's July now though and I have exciting news! I am honored and giddy with excitement to tell you that I am guest designing for the CAS Colours & Sketches blog this month!

Here is my card for this week's challenge #131, using the colors Tempting Turquoise, Rich Razzleberry and Crumb Cake.

I started out with a panel of Stamper's Select White cardstock from which I cut the butterfly shape with Stampin' Up's Butterflies Thinlits dies.

Behind the die negative space I placed a small piece of Irresistibly Yours designer paper in the polka dot pattern that I inked up in the turquoise and raspberry shades.

Over top of this "inked" piece, I placed the intricate die cut butterfly creating a sort of "stained glass" effect for the whole image... I love it!

My sentiment is from the SU set Butterfly Basics and is stamped in Crumb Cake ink for a beautifully soft finish to the card!

Thanks so much for stopping by and if you haven't taken part in the CAS Colours & Sketches challenge to date I encourage you to give it a try today!
