Good Morning Everyone!
The weather has turned into Winter here on the North Island. Yesterday it wasn't raining cats and dogs.. It was raining pigs and elephants! We had high winds that shut down the ferry at times and are like the ones that usually start up at the end of October, just before Halloween. Getting out of bed and going to work has been a dreaded chore this week!
I came up with this card after seeing a challenge at The Outlawz for the Sunday CAS card. Not too sure if this is CAS enough but it's worth a shot!
The butterfly and flowers are stickers that I picked up at Crafty Capers in Nanaimo two weeks ago. The challenge was no stamps except for the sentiment! Perfect! I coloured the butterfly first only to realize I didn't have papers to coordinate so pulled out the Vellum and embossed with the CB. The embossing turned out neat but didn't stand out so lightly applied Distress Inks to make it come to life. The end result was exactly what I wanted!
Super easy card and although I'm not great at cards that aren't Stampscapes, I like this one. Here is a close up view of the embossing and stickers...
