Thinking of You!

Hi!

Well as I have stated in the past, I craft by mood, and today it was a more modern CAS kind of day!

I needed a Thinking of You card and I loved the color palette at CR84FN.  It was the perfect combination to spark my creativity for this card!

I used Stepping Stones Designs Always Here.  I stamped the butterfly and cut it out. Next I bent the wings upward and glued the center of the butterfly down adding some beautiful rhinestones for a finishing touch.

I am just squeaking in the final hours of Jules Snippet Challenge! The above creation were snippets in my scrap box.  You would think my pile is lessening, but somehow it feels like it's multiplying!  I guess that means I have way too many scraps!  I can't throw anything out because I am usually grabbing small pieces to punch or piece, or just create a whole card, so you just never know when you can use something! Also the recycle girl in me just can't seem to throw those papers out! 

Before you go! Here is the lovely inspiration color story for CR84FN.

Hope your day has been terrific!

Beautiful, blue, CAS butterfly! And good for you, saving those bits to use on a card someday. I do the same, and even find myself picking things up off the ground in a parking lot. It's a sickness, isn't it? LOL
