Treasure Friendship

Not such a great photo tonight, sorry! The CAS challenge on SCS was an inspiration challenge using the kids bedding section from the online JCPenny catalogue. I chose the bright set that had these wonderful yellow pillows that had these great wavy lines on them. I used  CTMH sets, Ritzy Ribbon for the ribbon and Geometric Thoughts for the sentiments. The butterflies are punched out using Fiskar's butterfly punch. Each one was punched twice, one was glued flat and the other I bent the wings up. The center of each butterfly is Tulip pearl paint.  

I am having fun playing with the CAS (clean and simple) card style. It is a nice change of pace, plus for some reason, I feel more comfortable using bright colors. I think it is because of using the white background, not sure though. Thanks for checking in with me!

Oh, I love this card! Your double-punching idea is so cool, and the pearl paint looks great. Also, I have some ribbon stamps and am always at a loss for something to do with them that doesn't look "faux" KWIM? This is a great use of them and I'm filing the idea for future use!
