Simply Saturday - Started off CAS ;-)

Hello everyone.  Hope your weekend is going well so far.

Shannon and I are going out shopping today.  Just for clothes and stuff, but also need to get some jewelry for Prom which is only 3 weeks away!

I have what started out to be a CAS card for you today.

I jut couldn't cope with all that white space LOL!

Using the wonderful Polkadoodles Lemonade Fizz Collection.

I printed the pre-coloured flower onto water colour card, and then cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 8 Die.


Then using my Silhouette Cameo, I cut out extra flowers to create layers, and also some butterflies.


For the inside I used one of the Toppers for my message panel.


All the edges of all the layers, flowers and butterflies have been inked.


For my butterflies, I finished them off with some seed beads and some 26 gauge wire.  I love how they turned out :-)


Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

I am entering this card in the following challenges.

Craftin Desert Divas - Challenge: In the Garden (closes 8 May)

Ooh La La Creations - Challenge #203 Photo Inspiration (closes 8 May) 

Tuesday Throwdown - Challenge #291: Anything Goes (closes 2 May)

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy crafting.

  8. What a lovely card! The colors are perfect for spring and I really love the dimension added by those beautiful butterflies.
    I really love the look of a CAS card, I just don't seem to have it in me to create one however. I always feel like it's missing "a little something"!

  9. I recently listened to Jennifer McGuire talk about our crafty comfort zone. She wasn't being critical, just making the point that we each have a style all our own. She also expressed joy at being able to "see" a certain crafter in a given project because it was so in their comfort zone. This is on my mind as I read your post and gaze at your card. It's beautiful - like your projects usually are. This card made me smile real big. Excellent, Karon.

  16. This is so pretty. I can't seem to handle too much white either. If I give a CAS card, it's assumed I'm having a bad day and just couldn't create.lol
