Creating a sophisticated CAS card is not as easy as it looks sometimes. I try to minimize the color, element and images. This card is actually my 2nd take. For the colorful piece, I applied the alcohol inks on the backside of the vellum. However, in my first try, the rich purple color was so saturated that it was distorting the image. So I re-did another piece and was satisfied how the purple ink complimenting the glitter Cuter Cluster die.
Lastly, the gold ink splatter really makes the design pop. I actually splashed the gold Wink of Stella over the finished design. The droplets are tiny, the stake is not as high. So, it's all good :)
I would love it if you can leave me some blog love over Paper Smooches.

The butterfly card and a Penny Black Die goes to....
~drum roll please~
What a lovely card, Virginia, and lovely chance to receive a card and gift from you. I think my favorite on this card: butterflies with silver antennae yet!!! Soon we all will be visited by butterflies; and, although this winter wasn't so bad, the idea of spring is excellent. My daffodils are up about 5 inches so soon their sunny faces will cheer me.
Please e-mail me with your postal address, so I can send the prize to you.
