{Card Set Inspiration: Day 2}


I knew when I saw the CASE Study challenge this week that I had to pull out my Hero Arts butterfly stamps.  I love the intricate detail on these.  I decided to keep the design very simple with just a tiny touch of color. SU's Pacific Point is quickly becoming one of my favorite colors.  I added a touch of ribbon to finish off the card.  I made all sympathy cards for this card set, but it would be super easy to change up the sentiments for the card.

You know I love butterflies and the way you did them in white on the black is fabulous! Perfect touch with the pop of turquoise.

This is a gorgeous set! I love how you adapted the design for a more solemn occasion, but the touch of color is very uplifting.

Absolutely gorgeous, Lynn! And so needed, especially when one is so NOT wanting to create. That's one of my favorite, SU colors, too!

I love how the butterflies pop off the grey (black?) card strip and the bow balances the sentiment so perfectly!

I do prefer realistic butterfly images and these are gorgeous... Just like etchings on the dark card!!!

Ahhh a new baby in the family too, sweet way to use the sketch for a CAS card :0)
