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.

  7. Beautiful card Karon, thanks for sharing it and happy shopping! Deb xo

  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.

  10. Oohh, I love those butterflies! They add so much dimension.

  11. This is as sweet as pie! Lovely design!!!

  14. Very pretty. Love the soft colors.

  15. I love your butterflies. Gorgeous design. hugs, Teresa

  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

  17. I love CAS and I would still say this is. Whether it is or not, I love it!

    Hugs and blessings,

  19. It's BEAUTIFUL Karon! I'm with you on those Darn CAS cards - to much white space makes me crazy! LOL But I'm still trying! But this card is so lovely with the flowers and butterflies... Elegant! :)
