Friday Casualness on a Wednesday


Hello again!  I'm excited for tomorrow because after that we have a three day weekend for Bermuda Day! Whoop whoop!  Hopefully it will be nice and warm because it's officially the first day of the year that Bermudians go for a swim.  We'll see if I make it. I'm more of a July sort of girl myself... 

As for my card, it's my entry for the CAS-ual Fridays challenge to stamp on patterned paper. I used some yummy Authentique paper and a lovely Craft's Meow butterfly image.  A bit of creative trimming, some bling and we have a card!  :)  And with that I am off to bed as tomorrow promises to be a long one.   Have a lovely evening!


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Rustic Cream) Papertrey Ink, (Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper:  (Carefree 6x6) Authentique
Stamps:  (Butterfly from Beautiful Spring) The Craft's Meow, (Sentiment from Chit Chat) Paper Smooches
Inks  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Gems:  Recollections

Enjoy your long weekend. I hope the water is warm enough to swim. :) I LOVE how you fussy cut the butterfly. That looks so cool (and perfectly executed--the cutting, not the butterfly). ;) Thanks for joining us at CAS-ual Fridays!

Totally stunning card - the fussy cutting around the butterfly is so striking!
