Brushos and Butterfly --- Part 2


Hi everyone.  Today is the latest challenge for ATS&M (#124 - CAS).  Of course, you know that this is my favourite style of card, so I had fun! :)



Prize:  5 digital images


There's something about butterflies with the Brushos backgrounds.  Am loving them together! :)  I'm not one to use butterflies very often, but it just works :)

I continuing having fun with my Brushos colour crystals and used them again today for the main panel on this birthday card for my friend Frances ... it was her birthday a while back, but I have only recently given her this card (didn't want to mail it and have the butterfly crushed) :)  I kept the die-cuts simple, even adding vellum for the solid butterfly so nothing would cover up the gorgeous colours of the background.  I used glossy accents to attach the butterfly and lift the wings.  I hope you like it!

Please join us for the ATS&M #124 - CAS challenge.  Come check out the rest of the talented Design Team cards and the rules for the challenge.  We'd love to see your CAS cards in the gallery!
