CAS Challenge #11

Today hubby finally had his MRI scan so we should soon know what is causing him so much pain. Hopefully the doctors will be able to put him right and our world will return to normal.

In the meantime I am sleeping in my craft room so I am having to tidy it up every night. Not necessarily a bad thing as I struggle to focus among chaos! That'll be my ADHD.

Anyway, today I am entering another challenge, this time from Colours and Sketches.

This was the colour scheme:

I worry sometimes that my creations are very plain when I see some of the intricate cards other people have made. I do like simple designs.

The base is Crumb Cake as is the Seam Binding behind the butterflies with a mat of Very Vanilla.

The butterflies, from Papillon Potpourri are stamped in Perfect Plum on Very Vanilla cardstock and the edges sponged with Perfect Plum using a sponge dauber. The sentiment is also Perfect Plum using the Curly Cute stamp set.

I used a 1" punch to cut the squares and my trusty Stamp-a-majig to get the sentiment straight.

I hope you like it! As always I love your comments!
