CAS Butterflies

Hello Everyone,

For today I am playing along with AAA Cards, Creative with Stamps, and The Paper Players. The theme this week are butterflies.. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

White on white branches give the card movement without being busy.
I wanted a bit more interest so I stamped the sentiment vertically.

Challenges Entered:


All the white around the colorful butterflies, I think, allows it to be CAS. Right? Even though the branches are in the backdrop they blend into the same color background making those butterflies pop off the card. Literally.. I had a hard time with the sentiment. Nothing seemed to have worked then I thought of stamping the sentiment vertically.. Well here is the result and I don't think it is that bad. In fact, I kind of like it. :)

Again, thank you for joining me today. My dog is looking at me as if to say 'If you don't walk me soon I am going to float away!'. So I should walk his royal-ness, Crown. Have a great day and until next time take care!

All the best,

Wow! I love how you created this card! The white allows the butterflies to pop but it's not boring! I love the tree in the background. Well done! :) Thank you so much for joining us at our 1st challenge at Creative With Stamps!
