live in the sunshine...

Hey friends!!  Hope your week is going well.  Can't believe that summer is coming to a close.  We are still have great weather (after some thunder storms over the weekend), but the temperature has come down into the mind 80s...YAY!  I have a card to share that I made for several challenges:  CAS on Sunday - vellum, Sweet Sunday Sketch (layout) and Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge:  Citron.   The color combo is based on this week's Splitcoaststampers color challenge.  The colors are yellow, coral and lavender.   I had a hard time putting the colors together until I decided to use some patterned paper in the lavender color.  The stamps I used are from Stampin Up! (Butterfly Basics and Pursuit of Happiness).  The cardstock and patterned paper panels were die cut using my A Jillian Vance Design Polka Dot Backdrop dies.  Love the clean, crisp look that die cut panels provide!  The butterfly was die cut from PTI patterned vellum using a Stampin Up! butterfly die.  After stamping the fern image I adhered the panels per the sketch adding in a thin strip of grey cardstock.  Some lengths of baker's twine in the three main colors were cut, added to the mini clothes pin, the pin adhered to the butterfly and the butterfly adhered to the panel.   Adding this to the current Dies R Us challenge:  the great outdoors.



Thanks for stopping by today...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  Recollections white; Simon Says Stamp Fog; Stamps:  Stampin Up!; Dies:  Stampin Up! and A Jillian Vance Design; Inks:  Stampin Up! and Memento; Baker's Twine:  My Mind's Eye and Stampin Up!; Vellum:  PTI; Mini clothes pin:  Impress

Hello Rosie,
You have still managed to keep the CAS style in your creation even though you have included elements that are classed mixed media......How do you do this??????
I agree it is crisp and clean, is that why you included the peg?
All humour aside, it is a delightful design and a wonderful looking card.
Smiles:)

What an absolutely clever card you've created! I am so impressed at the combination of elements and how you made this so much more than just a couple of stems and a butterfly! It's an interesting and lovely take on all forms and I especially liked how you clipped the Baker's Twine to the middle of the butterfly. You have beautiful details and I thoroughly enjoyed seeing this project. Thanks for sharing it with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
