I started out to have a CAS card also, but my stencil slipped and I got ink on my vanilla layer, so had to cut out the butterfly (sponged with Distress inks and overstamped with foliage) and pop it up. Then that looked too plain, so I embossed the layer beneath the butterfly, matted it, and it just kept going! Anyway, thanks, Harriet for the inspiration!

What gorgeous colors and sponging and love that you stamped inside the butterfly. I agree with Polly on the solid white brick background to showcase your beautiful butterfly!

That butterfly is awesome - I love the distress ink blending and the overstamping. The embossed background is perfect to show off your butterfly!! Thank you for casing one of my cards Claudia - I am honored. Thank you for always commenting on my cards as well - I appreciate it.

Wow! This is awesome! The orange butterfly is what caught my eye (one of my favorite colors); and, when I pulled it up on my screen, I saw all the rest of the details. I love the brick background behind your very cool butterfly.
