CAS and a Butterfly



A very clean and simple card today but I think it turned out rather nice. And yes, it's ANOTHER red, black and white card again! For some reason I'm really hung up on that color combo right now. The DP is some that was given to me by Maria (thanks again) and it just really has a pretty pattern to it. The butterflies were cut using the Beautiful Wings die from SU. The sentiment, also from SU, is from the set Three Little Words. Lately it seems the photographs of my cards are not coming out very good. So, I attempted to take this one at a slightly different angle. Not sure I like that look and will have to play around some with the camera to see what I can come up with.



Hope everyone is having a great week and thanks for stopping by.............

Hi Lynn,

I am a big fan of black and white and have been wanting to make a black and white card for ages now. This card is so strikingly elegant... Red always look perfect with black and white. Love, love, love your card!

Hope that pinched nerve is sorted out...

Hugs,

Monica

Lynn, I love black, white and red! This is a terrific card and the butterfly is the perfect touch. I think I used black, white and red somewhere myself this week. :-) This is exactly the perfect splash of color. Did you post it over at The Play Date Cafe? It's perfect for their challenge!

Looks terrific!!!! So clean and simple!!! I think the card angle is OK - I find it happens if I take a picture from up above the card, but yours looks pretty straight on.
