CS199 - Butterfly Thank You

Last chance to link up to Darnell's birthday party. The link will close tonight at midnight. Thanks to every one who linked up!


Look who finally got her PTI butterfly dies?! ME! So excited to finally join 'the club' and be able to make pretty cards with these dies! This week's CASE Study is the perfect opportunity! Here's the inspiration:


I focused on the colours, the circles, and the butterfly (YAY!) I coloured the dots of the wings with copics before laying them back in (using tape on the back to hold them) and then added some glossy accents for dimension and shine.

ETA: Well, I missed the deadline, so this card is not in the CASE Study gallery. Still, I'm glad I made the card - it's definitely different than my usual!

These are great dies and I love that you CASified them. Sorry you missed the challenge though.

Mmm, I don't know, Ardy. I think this is still totally recognizable as an "Ardyth card" in design, execution, and beauty!!

Thank you again for hosting the InLinkz surprise birthday party for me! I'm forever grateful!! Hugs, Darnell
