CAS Thinking of You

Good Tuesday Morning Peeps!!

Today's card is made with Stacey's Curtain Call Color Challenge-Act 24.

I soooo struggled with this card, I think it is because my mojo has gone missing.....if you see it will you please send it home? LOL!!

The colors for the challenge are temping turquoise, so saffron, garden green, whisper white and kraft. I tried several different ideas with this challenge and nothing seemed to come together, finally I just decided to go clean and simple.

The base of my card is kraft and I followed that with half white and half turquoise that was ran through the cuttlebug and the Swiss dot embossing folder. I used my Embosslits Beautiful Wings for my butterflies, one in each of the colors and then mounted them to a 1 inch circle of whisper white, that was also embossed with the Swiss dot folder.

The sentiment comes from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" stamp set. I added some white grosgrain ribbon across the center, where the colors meet and a bow. I then added two small silver pearls to each of the butterflies.

This card also fits the:

CAS61-only stamping the sentiment

Crazy 4 Challenges-Kraft base

Well, that is all from me today, thanks so much for coming by, hopefully I will be back in the morning with a card using Mercy's Sketch Challenge
