CAS-ual Fridays


This week our challenge at CAS-ual Fridays is to use a punch or die to make our clean and simple project.  I had a chance to borrow my friend Yvonne's Cheery Lynn stamps awhile back and die-cut a whole bunch of them in different colors, and I've been hoarding them ever since.  I thought I'd combine this challenge with Cath's Doilies and Lace challenge at Moxie Fab World, too.   Here's my card:


supplies: Hero Arts tide layering paper, CG168 Circle Doily, VersaMark ink and white embossing powder, Cheery Lynn butterfly design, tiny rose from my sweet friend Clare, Technique Tuesday Simply You by Ali Edwards, VersaFine onyx black ink





Edited to add: This card was published in CARDS magazine, March, 2013 on page 140.

I agree with Cath...gasp;) That card is a show stopper. I love the color,the embossed doily, the delicate butterfly, and the perfectly matched flower. Exquisite. Would you share the name of the paper? I tried to recreate a version of your card...it doesn't come close.
Be well my friend Hugs Carole
