"We listen,we laugh, we sigh, time flies by"

I made this card for a friend that I haven't seen in a while.  Thought the CAS design and size would be great for writing.  I haven't done a plain and simple card in like forever!  It was loads of fun and so darn easy.  Less than 15 minutes including the clean up. 

Not only was it fast to make, but the simplicity of the design makes it pop.  I think I am going to start making more CAS cards.  I did have to resist the temptation to color the small butterfly with my markers...argh.  It was tough but I resisted.  

I entered this little card into the following challenges:

Here's what I used to create my card:
  • Stampendous "We Listen, we laugh, we sigh time flies by" stamp
  • Disney, Tinkerbell Butterfly Stamp
  • Cuttlebug and Swiss Dots Embossing Folder
  • MS Butterfly Double Edge Punch
  • Scallop and Round Punch
  • Pink and brown Cardstock 
  • Funky Scissors
  • Ink, sponge
Thanks so much for stopping by, bunches of hugs Marjo

Hi Marjo, thanks for joining us!
I love this colour combo and those butterflies are just super... I have that punch too.. must get it out!
The card could do with being a little taller to reach the proportions of a DL card, but I know that it's an unknown size in some parts of the world!
