Tracy's Clean and Simple Challenge


Tracy, over at Ink Spots and Gum Drops blog (isn't that just about the cutest name!!) is having her very first Clean and Simple Challenge! I'm SO glad I discovered her blog as I love making CAS cards and projects. The challenge for this week was to use paper tearing on a project. I like using this technique but had never tried it with a CAS card. So this was really a challenge for me. Go check out her challenge HERE........you have until almost midnight tonight I believe to enter.

On this card, I used Cameo Coral, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, and Walk in the Park designer paper. The butterflies were made using the Beautiful Wings die. I added some rhinestones to their bodies and then kind of "fluffed" out the wings. I cut the three squares and adhered them using dimensionals on the middle one to give it, well, dimension! The sentiment is stamped in Brocade Blue using the Friendship image from the Wonderful Words set. All supplies are SU with the exception of the rhinestones.

This will be the last post for a few days as we just got over 100 ears of corn this morning!!! I'll be busy processing that - and then will have company coming for the weekend.

Thanks for stopping by....................
Lynn
