CAS Christmas

Good Evening Chickees!
This CAS Christmas card is my entry into The Outlawz CAS Challenge this week!  I had 15 minutes to spare so went to my 'room' and this is what I ended up with.  It looks so much better IRL because the cardstock colour is actually Next To Navy from Stampin' Up!  My embossing is Opaque White as is the base cardstock tho' it looks cream in this photo.
The recipe is as follow:
Inkadinkado for the main image
Studio G for the sentiment (One of those $1.50 stamps in the Michael's bins)
Next to Navy from Stampin' Up!
Staples 110 lb. white cardstock
Opaque White embossing powder
Bling from Recollections
Scoring on MS Score board

Thanks for looking!



Here is a butterfly (Swallowtail I think) that graced my backyard yesterday, feeding on the butterfly bush!  Isn't it beautiful!!??
I may have to print this out and use it on a card somehow!

Lovely card (for a quickie). Talented lady.
The butterfly and butterfly bush would make a great card.

Very nice Sheree!
Great picture too!
I'll be checking out the buck fifty bin at Michaels this weekend!

Oh wow, that butterfly is so beautiful. I should get out and take a photo of all the butterflies that are into our bottlebrush flowers at the moment. Such a wonderful card too....lovely stamp.

This is a gorgeous card! I forget about heat embossing and how gorgeous it makes your cards. I love the simplicity of this one. All the gorgeous swirls & textures. And don't you just love those wonderful dollar stamps at Michaels!

15 minutes? Are you serious, Sheree? That card is exquisite. I love all the fancy swirls and the jewels you added.

That is one beautiful butterfly and your photo is awesome. You should definitely make a whole set of cards with that photo.

Thanks for the lovely comments girlz! Yes.. 15 minutes! I thought of the design on the way home from work and everything fell into place easily. That doesn't happen very often..let's say never!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
