CAS Butterfly Work of Art

DSCF9316-001

Happy Thursday, peeps!  Poppin’ in with a quick card today for three challenges!  I guess I have butterflies on the brain, because I used one yesterday as well!  I am keeping my fingers crossed that the Butterfly Framelits will truly be available tomorrow!  We’ll see! 

My challenges today are the Color Throwdown #338:

The Can You Case It #65 clean and simple, two layer challenge:

CYCI#65

and the Retro Rubber brad challenge:

RRBC12

I have been neglecting my top stampers in my WeeInklings downline, so I went to work and actually made four of these in a short time:

Technically, I only used one brad, so I hope that counts, but regardless, I had a great time making these and my daughter even said she liked them a lot!  I stamped off some Gorgeous Grunge spatters in Lost Lagoon,Old Olive and Sahara Sand and made a Crumb Cake banner as a base for my butterfly, which was diecut from a Backgrounds Lost Lagoon DSP.  So my brad wouldn’t show on the inside, I cut off the brad’s legs and used glue dots to adhere them.  I also rounded one side of the card with a circle punch.  Finally, since all my downline are fabulous, I used this sentiment from Work of Art:

Hope they like it!

I’ve been making graduation announcements and had a spool of gold sequins on my (messy) craft counter.  Cassidy just couldn’t help herself; she had to play with them, and they became Rapunzel’s hair:

And yes, her hair is quite long…..all the way to the floor and then some!  Here is the prince, climbing up her hair:

I’ll spare you the mushy love scene, but this is what it looked like by the time she was done playing:

What an imagination!!!  Enjoy your day!

  1. Those sequins never stood a chance! ;) Love the card! I love the use of the grunge on a "dressy," feminine card and the fact that you did a 10min card, banging out the rest probably took no time at all. Yay fast!

  2. Ok. Maybe not feminine (I published that comment before taking a 2nd look) but definitely not "boyish" or masculine. Anywho. Great use of grunge. :)

  3. Gorgeous Grunge is one of the most versatile stamps sets ever!! goes great on any kind of card regardless of the theme. Your card is beautiful and that one brad is perfectly placed.
    Now, Rapunzel's hair never look more lovely, what a sweet imagination your little girl has, I bet that your craft room seems like and enchanted place for her.

  11. That delightful child has the best imagination! Seeing her, I know that kids will still make all kinds of things out of an old cardboard box - given the opportunity. Cassidy is the cutest little girl since my granddaughter!

  16. So, so pretty! I am sure that your downline will absolutely love this card! Gorgeous Grunge is always a great background for a bold focal point. I wonder who loves playing with sequins and ribbons more - children or cats! Thank you for playing along with Retro Rubber this week.

  21. LeAnne, your card and post are great! Love the scene with Rapunzel ;-) One brad is totally fine :-) I think you creatively used it on the butterfly; I tend to go with a strip of rhinestones or pearls. I appreciate your out of the box thinking with one big beautiful brad!
