Thinking of You


Hi friends!  Welcome to Friday..WooHoo!!  I'm seriously ready for the weekend this week!  Headed out tonight with my hubby to celebrate his birthday (ask me if I've even done anything for him yet...nope...I better get busy!) and on Saturday I hope to enjoy a long morning, sipping coffee, hanging with my kiddies and not even thinking about schoolwork! :-)
 
For today's card I decided to create a CAS card on...black!  Most CAS cards are on white but hey, black is cool too, right?  I started by layering a few Distress Stains on to white cardstock.  I used white cardstock by Wplus 9 because it's super thick and able to handle the stains without warping.  I then dried the stains with my heat gun and got out my Sweet 'n Sassy stamps and dies!  I first stamped the Friendship Script stamp on the cardstock and got busy with my fav New Beginnings Butterfly dies.  Once the butterflies were cut out I added tiny gold pearls for their bodies.  The sentiment is from the True Friend stamp set and I used a die from My Favorite Things, Layered Label, to frame the sentiment.  Easy peasy, right?
 
Enjoy today's card and enjoy your weekend!

Oh, how pretty Kim. Those butterflies are gorgeous with the orange hues and script.

You are right, white is usually used for CAS cards, and I really like the black that you've used! It is a great backdrop for the vivid orange of the butterflies. This is a lovely creation.
