CC217 & CAS13 Challenges...

Happy Friday my stampin' friends... YES, the weekend is here and time to enjoy it!! :)

This week I made a card using the CC217 (SCS color challenge) working with Garden Green, Cameo Coral and Ballet Blue colors. Then I decided to use the CAS13 (Clean and Simple Challenge) for the layout!!

The card base was given to me by a friend which is a Martha Stewart "Thank You" card (lace edge). Found on clearance at Wal-Mart!! Such BEAUTIFUL lace details... :) The butterfly stamp was from an old retired SU! set Rose Rhapsody! Remember that set?? I cut an extra butterfly out in Cameo Coral to give some dimension!!

Have a super evening and get some stamping time in this weekend!! I'm watchin' Happy Feet right now... SO cute.... ENJOY!!

Smiles... Michelle :)

Stamps: SU! Rose Rhapsody, A Little Birthday Cheer Paper: SU! Cameo Coral, Whisper White, Martha Stewart (card base) Ink: SU! Cameo Coral, Garden Green, Ballet Blue Other: EK wave border punch, dimensionals, etc.

I like that Martha punch. I'll have to check our Wallys and see if I could be so lucky to find one on clearance! One of my friends has the wave border punch..thats a fun one too. I like how you just used it on two edges.

You're watching Happy Feet... how cute! I just love you, Michelle. You always make me smile!

Cute card. You've inspired me to try a few SCS challenges again. I've neglected them for far too long! I'm hoping to get some stamping time in this weekend since Paul and the boys have promised that this is Mother's Weekend and they are going to treat me like a queen, clean the house, fix all the meals, etc. Yeah, right! LOL

Hugs,
Lisa

Michelle, this card is so pretty. I love the colour combination you used for the butterflies. The lace edging on the card is divine.

Hi, Michelle! Love the card! I just bought that dotted wave punch yesterday in Cambridge, after looking for it for 2 months! Can't wait to try it out.....
Have a great day! See you on Monday evening.

That lacy edge is so gorgeous! What a fun idea to pop up one butterfly. Good job using that challenging color combo.
