Fluttering by with Hugs and Kisses

I'm fluttering by this evening with a CAS card. You know those times you see a sketch that really grabs you, well that's what happened and this card came together without any thought or planning.

I used white linen card to make the card base and the paper is from Prima Doodle Deux collection (from my snippets box). The butterfly is a Marianne Design Creatable die which I cut twice and layered, the sentiment is Clearly Besotted and I added a couple of pearls to finish it off.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Less Is More challenge 'sketch time'
Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use snippets' (my 2nd entry)
Papertake Weekly challenge 'take your pick' (I picked the warm colours theme'
Fussy and Fancy Friday challenge 'things with wings'
Cuttlebug Mania challenge 'wildlife' (I used my Grand Calibur and Marianne Creatables die)

I don't use the large butterfly die very often but I must say I'm pleased with the way this card turned out and even hubby said he liked it. Thanks for popping by to take a look.

  9. Super card and loving your use of the die cut butterfly


  10. Very nicely done! I made a similar card but rejected that very butterfly as too big. However, you really made it work. I guess I was just short-sighted!

  11. So stylish Kanda and a great interpretation of our sketch!
