I loved the inspiration picture for today's CAS challenge http://www.fotosearch.com/DGT150/afb0009/ and was especially drawn by the texture of the dark brown table. I took a piece of Early Espresso and ran it through my crimper from each corner to get some texture then smoothed it out some with my bone folder. I then punched 1 1/4" squares and sponged to highlight the texture. I also thought I'd use this card for Bridget's HYCCT challenge called Things are Looking Up. Love to see butterflies flying in my yard (especially when my youngest daughter is running around chasing them!).

Gail, you cleverly combined the CAS inspiration challenge with the "looking up" challenge, I love this! The textured bg is fabulous, and you brought the colors in the photo to beautiful life on your card! Thank you so much for playing along in the challenge for such a great cause!
