~~~Butterfly~~~

Quick CAS card.
Why is CAS not so easy?
So maybe CAS isn't CAS?
uhm, deep...


I bought the stamp on sale. Love it for the doily look.

Just a few inspirational challenges today.

365 Cards, Day 352 - paper clipped (I used a round paperclip)
Paper Craft Star - butterflies
Craft Us Crazy - favorite color (black/white color combo, with pop of melon mambo)
and favorite embellishment (rhinestones, punches)
Our Creative Corner - Black and white with a splash of color
The Play Date Cafe - Black and white with a splash of hot pink
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - no designer paper
CCEE Stampers - white on white with a little color
Truly Scrumptious Challenge - all creatures great and small
Alphabet Challenge - animal antics

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week-end.
