Oh happy day!

Hi all!  I've got a sweet CAS card today using the newest EXCLUSIVE stamp from the May Market Fresh Kit......this awesome butterfly!  I have had some things going on lately and well, just not enough time to get it all done.  Pair that with our 21 yr old niece moving in with us this weekend!  Yikes......her room is NO way near clean!!


Is this not the most beautiful color palette here with this new kit?  {swoon}
I decided to use the butterfly and do a simple stamp and mask technique to the edge of some white cardstock.  I wish I'd had more time to re-do this card as that Pure Poppy ink I used just does NOT match the cardstock as seen here.  (it's the new shaped ink pad)


Oh Happy Day!

Amy, left you a note at MSS, but wanted to come by and let you know how much I love this card. I'm partial to butterflies anyway, but this is just gorgeous. Love the masking with this one, and the colors ARE yummy. Love the simplicity of it. I'll be CASEing! Thanks for the inspiration.
