It's CAS-ual FRIDAY CHALLENGE at last!

I have been so excited for this challenge to begin, and today is the day! I should totally be working on all the 60 plants I still have to wrap up tonight for the final day of Staff Appreciation Week up at school, but I just couldn't resist. I guess it will just be a very late night.Here is the card I made using text. I used some patterned paper that had text on it from SU, I am too lazy right now to look up the name, but I used it with the Top Note Die. The I die cut the butterflies, and ran them through my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder, added some rhinestones, and there you pretty much have it!

Sorry the picture is so poor. I wanted to get this posted tonight, and well, it's dark outside!


Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!

Supplies:

Black, Peach Parfait, Concord Crush, Poppy Parade Card Stock by Su

First Edition PP by SU

Top Note Die, Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, Big Shot, Pear Pizazz Twill Ribbon by SU, Rhinestones, Dimensionals

Love how your card shows movement-that is just awesome! Great colors and great use of the text too. So so happy that you found time to play at CAS-ual Fridays, I hope that you can play again, maybe some times you won't have to stay up too late! Good luck with getting everything done for school too.

Great use of the top note die with the patterned paper ( I recognize the paper and have it in my stash too but the name eludes me as well lol). Love the texture on the butterflies :) Thanks for playing with us this week at CAS-ual Fridays!

Great card! I love the text on the top note die cut. That die is so wonderful for fancying up cards without taking away their "CAS-ness". Love the butterflies, too.
