I know this one is pushing the CAS envelope...sorry, it kind of got away from me! I was clearing kitchen counters and thought that the liner from the chocolate box might make an interesting bg. So, I peeled off one side of it and there was the bubbly-looking piece left over. I sponged with some grey....I was thinking of the great texture in the bg of the sample color picture from the challenge. I added some burlap to the bottom for my tan element. I took some leftovers from my DD's wedding invites http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...965?&cat=17487 spritzed with water to punch and die cut my butterflies. I added some sponging to the edges. I would have stamped my sentiment, but the bg was too bumpy so I ended up with a layered sentiment.

Isn't it amazing the things we have lying around the house that can add such dimension and texture to our creations? I would not have thought to use bubble wrap, Gail, but it looks pretty cool on your card! Love those pretty butterflies~

Love the burlap grass. Very innovative. And the bubble wrap looks like a stone wall which is a very nice back drop for those gorgeous butterflies.
