CAS-ual Sunday!!!

Yay!  A new blog challenge started this week….I’ve been waiting for it to start for a while now!  Then when the time comes…I miss the start of the first challenge!   Tsk!  Check it out over on CAS-ual Friday.

So I’m having a CAS-ual Sunday instead.  A fab challenge though…and not an easy one!  They are testing our use of text – not a sentiment, but incorporating text into the design of the card.  And guess what!  I have some new stash from Stampin’ Up!  that can help with that!! *girly hand clap*


I’ve used the Butterfly Prints Stamp set (the text butterfly, of course) and stamped it three times in Baja Breeze, Cherry Cobbler and Soft Suede.  I’ve offset an inspirational sentiment from Heard from the Heart  and arranged the butterflies across the 15cm square card blank.

I did toy with the idea of adding bling trails from the butterflies and left the decision with my husband….he’s very craft-tolerant.  His comment of “It looks like the butterflies are leaking” made me decide to leave them off!!  He does try…bless!

So I’d love to know what you think…thanks for reading.
