CAS is Best.

My 2nd weeks card for inspiration on the Butterfly Challenge
doesn't come much more CAS than this yet it covers all the required elements. 


I simply used a snippet of white card already out on my desk and as the box of Distress Ink pads was also out on the floor ( currently being used on another project) I pulled out the Spiced Marmalade and inked straight onto the card. Micron black fine liner pen used to draw the random lines and then the butterflies stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black  using a small wooden stamp by Dovecrafts. Backed onto black card  and then adhered with 3D pads onto a white cardstock base. Simples!!
I like it when a plan comes together.

Your butterflies really stand out against the orange and that's a great way to do a background. I never remember to do it. Simple as you say.
