daydream, wish... play

Hello!!   Have a card I made today for the new sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch.   I thought the sketch was pretty nifty and would work well with some little Studio Calico wooden words that I had purchased a few months ago, but not found the right project for.    I jazzed up the words a little bit by adding some paint using  Ranger paint daubers that I had in my stash (light pink, light blue and light green).    I partially embossed a piece of rustic white card stock using my SU! Honeycomb embossing folder and trimmed it down to fit the card front, the edges were roughed up a bit and attached to the card base.  I embossed another piece of rustic white with my SU! Woodgrain embossing folder and daubed on some of the paint.  Once it was dry I punched out a butterfly and added a tiny kraft colored button.    I arranged the words, added the butterfly and I was done. 

Thanks for stopping by....

Supplies:  Card stock:  PTI Rustic White & kraft; words:  Studio Calico; Paint Daubers:  Ranger; Butterfly Punch:  Martha Stewart; Button:  PTI; Embossing Folders:  Stampin Up!

Love your interpretation, Rosemary, the wooden words and partial embossing (very inspired) add such texture and the colours are so soft and gentle! Anita :)
