Triple CAS

DSCF0117-001

Hi peeps!  A three-challenge card today!  Here are the challenges:

A sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch #2:

A CAS challenge from CAS-ual Fridays:

and an inspiration photo from Inspired By #46:

And here we go:

DSCF0114-001

This card didn’t turn out at all the way I had first envisioned it!  I fiddled with a couple little images, didn’t like them, chucked them, tried something else, chucked that, then remembered these pretty chipboard stickers I had…and the colors in this butterfly matched the necklace pretty well!  I made the card a wee bit narrower so that it will fit into a normal envelope even with the butterfly hanging over the edge.  A little bit of baby powder patted on the sticky side keeps it from sticking to the envelope!

Can you see the glitter on the wings?  So pretty!  I added an Artistic Outpost sentiment and a little flower (the rule of three) to finish it off.  Oh, and the mat is Sahara Sand with Distressed Dots stamped in craft white!  Thanks for visiting today!

Cassidy is taking Lambie for a walk in the yard….but he has to be sitting in the cart just so!
