CAS Butterflies

Hello everyone! Are you as excited as I am that Friday is almost here? Just a quick post tonight, hubby and I are both off work this evening so we can spend some time together. The clean and simple (CAS) on splitcoast was to used to layout used here. I thought these butterflies would make a cute card. I really like this layout a lot and will definitely use it again. The butterflies and sentiment are all from a set from Clear Dollar Stamps called Butterfly Wings. I like this set because the wings, body and the decorations on the wings are all different stamps so it easy to customize your butterflies any way that you want. After stamping the sentiment and the main butterflies, I went in and scattered some of the smaller ones throughout. The butterfly in the center was stamped twice, once onto another piece of paper and then cut out and applied here with foam squares. I also went over the decorative part of the wing with a clear glitter pen. Paper is DCWV, ink is CTMH, glitter pen is from Sakura and Stamp is from Clear Dollar Stamps.
