CAS Butterflies

After my Funny Friday on Saturday (previous post), I thought calm things down a bit and do a "git 'er done" card using the Beautiful Wings butterfly die.   I'm really thinking I needed a couple more butterflies on here, but three is what you get.  Also, I tried to angle them a little but the glue stuck and when that stuff sticks, there's just no moving those babies!  I even did a little scoring on here - had to get the cobwebs off that thing!


I'll be back tomorrow with two posts for DT's - Shopping Our Stash and {Pin}spirational....so be sure and check back tomorrow if you get a chance.

I'll enter this in the challenges at Mark's Finest Papers (Black and White with a Splash of Color), Emergency Crafters (Butterflies, Birds or Anything with Wings), and Stampin for the Weekend (Birds and Butterflies).

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

I think this is lovely! I love the embossing on the butters and love the shortened bottom embossed line for the sentiment. Nice! Very very nice!

Love this CAS and the pop of color, with the black and white. I think it is fine with the butterflies the way they are. Stay cool.
