CASology 18

Thursday, November 8, 2012

The cue card this week at CASology is ORANGE.  At this time of year that conjures all sorts of ideas like the turning leaves, pumpkins, maybe even a squash or two.  But lately I've been on this bender where I take a color challenge that may evoke certain images and turn it into something a little unexpected.  So instead of grabbing a leaf to make my card I grabbed a butterfly.  That's an image that I love to use and have been neglecting since the colder weather has come around.



I did the one-layer CAS thing here with a fun circle border and a butterfly popped up on dimensionals.  I chose this rather understated sentiment because I wanted the circles and the butterfly to be the real showpiece of this card.  Everything was stamped in Tangerine Tango.  And of course, I stamped the sentiment crooked because that's what I do!  Grrrrr!

Thanks for stopping by!

Great clean and simple card...love the orange and white together. Like everyone else, I would never have known the sentiment was crooked if you hadn't told us.

I almost grabbed a butterfly the other day and then decided it wasn't the right season...that's just not right, is it?! I think I'll take your lead and start using butterflies again even though winter is about here! I can't get enough of butterflies either!!

Love this clean, graphic card! Love that dot border!!! Thanks for joining us at CASology! :)
