CASology #252


Welcome to Week 252 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:


I challenged myself not go the obvious butterfly route for my card but in the end I got this idea in my head and couldn't shake it.  Really though, who can resist a pretty butterfly card?  I'm sure that butterflies and flowers make up 80% of my stamp images so I might as well use them right?  Bees and spiders can wait for another day...

Looking forward to seeing what direction the cue word takes you.  Check out the gorgeousness from the rest of the design team then play along!

Now I like me some buttery-flies. Your middle one reminds me of the monarchs I've been seeing on the lilac bushes around here as of late, and they always make me smile. I'm glad you went with them and not a (ewww....) centipede or something else creepy-crawlie! This is beautiful. CAS with just the sentiment, the butterflies, and those just right dots. GREAT card. xoxo Bev

I hear you, sometimes I just have to make the card that is in my brain, cause I can't focus on anything else until it's done lol. and who would ever complain about butterflies, there is no such thing as too many, love it Jen!

Well that does it... you use the butterflies, Joyce uses the dragonflies... I'm all out of stamp-able bugs... but I'm happy just to look at your beauties!

Great card Jen, I love the splatters / enamel dots? I had originally considered Butterflies..but went with a mix of 'insects' instead. Cx

Jacquie Southas said...

The design balance on this card is just perfect, Jen! Love the ombre colors of your butterflies!

Bobby said...

I was scouring my stamps looking for insects other than butterflies and didn't find much. But you're right, Jen, butterflies do make great cards.
