Ultra CAS


This is an ultra CAS card that I made for CAS79 over at SCS. That nestie is actually an oval and not a circle but for some reason in every picture I took, it comes out looking more like a circle! Oh, well.......I used one of the images from Watercolor Trio and one of the little butterflies from Beautiful Wings die (SU). The oval is popped up on dimensionals. I very lightly used some chalk inside the oval and placed one of those tiny little pearls on the butterfly. As I said, very much an ULTRA CAS card.

I'm going out of town for a few days so if I don't comment on your creations, please don't go into a panic! LOL! I'll try to catch up this weekend. I wish I could say I was going somewhere exciting but we're only going to see Jim's sister. She lives very close to the beach but doesn't like to go there - likes to go shopping instead. I can probably handle that!

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

I think your nestie shape looks like an oval. Maybe your eyes are going bad :-) I like that you chose to stamp your flower in the oval and pop it up. Gives a cas card more interest without making it busy.

Have fun on your visit.
