CAS(E) This Sketch Birthday!

I've been neglecting this blog lately haven't I?!  I'm so sorry!  I am going to try and get a few extra cards made this week if I can!  There has been a request made by my 6 year old to have a craft day on Friday during his PA day!  Should be good times!

I saw this week's sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch and knew I had to create a card!  I love their clean and simple sketches!  I fully believe that sometimes less is more!

I knew I wanted a butterfly on my card and I using Papillon Potpourri to create the perfect butterfly in a myriad of different colours/textures and I couldn't get one to work.  Sigh....Needless to say I found a scrap of textured Melon Mambo in my scrap bin and decided it would make a fabulous butterfly - with some bling of course!  I used black embossing powder on the flower to make sure that it was really black!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Melon Mambo
Stamps: Betsy's Blossoms
Ink: Melon Mambo, Versamark
Other: Basic Rhinestones, Elegant Butterfly Punch

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a fabulous day!!!
