CAS-ual Friday ~Sentiments as a Focal Point

I enjoy making CAS cards.... and today's one came about by a chance mistake.  On Saturday I borrowed Marisa's Wonky Labels and thought I'd use a folded card and cut two frames at once.   But looked what happened to the bottom half of the card

so here's what I did

Butterly sentiment


I used the bottom panel as an embossed frame.  I stamped Penny Black's sentiment stamp with Cup'o'Joe Ink and added a brown butterfly and the flower made with pages from an old book.  The leaf is a Sizzix die.   A perfect CAS card for CAS-ual Friday's challenge.

The week is going well so far.... looking forward to having a day off on Friday to go to the Craft and Sewing Fair... there's lots of workshops and demos on all sorts of crafty sewing stuff.  Should be fun if a little expensive...

well, my daughter has just rung and is talking to her Dad, so I'll go and wait my turn to talk to her.

Take care
Dawn
