Musical Butterflies & Lanterns

Hello!  I'm here today with two CAS cards for 4 challenges.  First up is a one layer card made with Skipping Stones Designs stamps.  I used the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch for my design and the butterflies have music notes inside of them so I am playing along with Addicted to CAS's music challenge.  I used some mini cube Distress Inks for the butterflies and I love the bright colours!  I was thinking I might make a set of these but change up the colours and sentiment.  

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink
Stamps:  (All from Heartsong) Skipping Stones Designs
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Sketch Distress Inks) Ranger
Gems:  Recollections

For my next card I combined Lawnscaping's patterns challenge with the light source challenge at the Paper Players.  I paper pieced the lanterns with glittery DCWV papers and popped them up on foam tape for some dimension.  This is a pretty old LF set but one I've gotten plenty of use out of over the years.  You can see the sparkle a bit better 
in this close up.

That's all for now.  Have a wonderful day!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill
Patterned Paper:  (Citrus Matstack) DCWV

Ink:  (VersaMarkVersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Clear) Hero Arts
Twine:  Darice
Gems:  (Orange) Doodlebug, (Black) Recollections
