CAS-ual Fridays #6

I needed a quick thank you card, and thanks to this week's  CAS-ual Friday challenge and my scrap basket, I was able to make one quickly.  This week we're to make a CAS card, incorporating any 3 lines of this table:


Here's what I came up with, using the diagonal line including emboss, punch, and buttons:


supplies: white cardstock, Hero Arts K5175 Houndstooth, Brilliance tricolor Peacock ink, clear embossing powder, H5426 Artists' Butterfly, and CL341 Thank You Sayings, versafine onyx black ink and clear embossing powder, tiny green buttons, Martha Steward butterfly punch

I started by stamping the Houndstooth pattern using Brilliance tri-color ink Peacock and clear embossed it.  That gave me my color scheme.  Then I pulled out an old finished scrap of the aqua/turquoise polished stone and clear embossed the butterfly, cutting it out.   I added some tiny buttons to its body and some previously punched MS butterflies as its trail.  All of my stamping was clear embossed.
