Purple Butterflies

Hi, I finally found some time to make a card for a couple of challenges. It's been a busy week and it's only Tuesday!

The theme at Addicted to CAS this week is Wings.

At CAS on Sunday  the theme this fortnight is flutterby, to use a butterfly in your project.

I'm also going to enter a new challenge for me Crazy for CAS,  where there are a number of texts or sayings to inspire your card. Beautiful as a butterfly suits my card. Thanks Sientje for the suggestion.

Materials used: Memory Box butterfly stamp and a small butterfly stamp that I've had for ages; Prismacolor pencils; Tiny Bubbles embossing folder; sentiment sticker and cardstock from stash.

Thanks for looking :)


  1. Hello Cathy,
    This is a stunning card. These butterflies look so real. The embossing highlights them really well. I am going to follow you :-) as I love your cards after browsing through your blog. Would love it if you follow me too.
    Happy crafting,

    1. Hi Cathy, thanks for joining our challenge over at Crazy for CAS. Can you place a link to our blog in your message. Than it fits all the rules.

    2. Your cards are very lovely, I just wish there were more instructions for the many of us who are just starting out and would like to know how these beautiful cards were made not just the items used.
