Paper Players 291 CAS Butterfly


Happy Sunday, everyone!  I hope you are having an enjoyable weekend!  It finally feels like spring here in Pennsylvania, and I am thrilled that Sandy chose such a beautiful theme for her clean and simple Paper Players challenge today!


In my quest to challenge myself, I was determined to use PURPLE.....I rarely use purple and I know there are lots of people who like it, so I went scouting for some Wisteria Wonder papers and found some older DSP with polka dots....can't go wrong with that!  I cut out a butterfly with the Bold Butterfly framelit in WW cardstock, then cut another one from the Butterflies framelit in Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper and layered them for my CAS card today:



It's hard to see here, but the glimmer paper is so pretty behind the cutout butterfly!  I also made two little banners with cardstock and glimmer paper for my sentiment (Paper Pumpkin) and added an embossed horizontal panel as well:


My sketch is from CAS(E) This Sketch for this week:


What a fun sketch it is!  I love the skewed panel!  So there you have it...now, how will you interpret this challenge?  We can't wait to see your butterfly creations....and remember to keep it clean and simple!  Share them with us at the PP blog and meanwhile, check out the DT's samples:


Cassidy is away for the weekend, so no pictures, but I wanted to show you a couple my sister Gail shared with me.  I love both my sisters, Joyce and Gail, and it is always amazing to me how alike we all are in some respects and different in others!  If you have siblings, you can probably relate!  We all three like birding, antiques, yardsaling/auctions, and homemaking.  Joyce is an animal lover, and Gail is into sports, and I do my crafting.  We all have "leadership qualities", which means we are bossy, I think!  Anyway, that's just an aside...of the three of us, Gail is definitely the more adventurous type, the world traveler and risk-taker, so she always has lots of funny stories to relate.  The other day she told me she was out for a bike ride and saw a camel!!!  (She lives on Isle of Palsm, near Charleston, SC....not exactly a camel mecca!)  So she sent me some pictures of Quigley, the camel:



She said he was very friendly and affectionate!  And the reason she knows the camel's name?  Her daughter's college roommate happens to date the son of the family that owns Quigley!!  How's that for a small world!  I can't wait to hear about her next adventure!  Enjoy your day!

  2. LeAnne I'm so happy to see this Wisteria Wonder in our CTS gallery! It is one of my favorite shades of purple, for sure! You are so right about the glimmer paper - beautiful choices! Thanks for playing cards with us this week! I hope I have the chance to get my own sweet SU butterfly out this week!

  3. Pretty, pretty, pretty! Love that Wisteria and white combo. I love purples and rarely use them either. Why is that? You've certainly rocked the CTS sketch this week. Great pics of your sister, and a fun little story to go with. Have a great Sunday afternoon.
