Time Out DT #33 Mid Challenge Reminder, AEI♥U #25, Addicted To CAS #65, My Favorite Things #233, SSS Work It Wednesday – May, SSS Wednesday 17/6

I’m here with a happy little reminder that there’s still almost a week to go before the doors close on our current challenge at Time Out … we’re ‘Inspired By Words’ at the moment … with ‘happy is the bride that the sun shines on’.  This time, I picked out the word ‘happy’ …

Time Out DT 33R, AEI♥U 25, ATCAS 65, SSSWIW MayTime Out… well, what could be happier than a fluttery butterfly over a rainbow of colour?  The rainbow here is stamped with Avery Elle‘s Brushed … I did a whole card panel and trimmed it down … so I still have lots still to play with.  The butterfly (from Papertrey, courtesy of my sweet friend Chriss) has a bottom layer of vellum and top layer of Wink of Stella coated white, and is adorned with rainbow gems.  I attached the rainbow strip flat to the card base, added Wink of Stella over the top and stamped the Avery Elle sentiment … and the butterfly gently settled herself into the remaining space.  She’s rather proud of her ensemble and thought you’d like to see it in a little more detail …

    If Miss Stylish Herself Butterfly would like to, I’ve got a new butterfly bush in my garden that’s ready to bloom. She’d definitely put all the other butterflies to shame! Gorgeous card, my friend. Tons of color and textures, yet it’s beautifully CAS. I always like visiting here and seeing what you’ve made! This is just lovely! Miss you. Bisous, bisous.

    Soooooo pretty! Gorgeous contrast between the vivid rainbow colors and the softness of the velum, bedazzled flutterby! All the yummy white space rocks!!!

    Did you get your ‘company preparations’ completed in time?

    Perfect sentiment to go with your bright rainbow-coloured strip Anita. Love the sweet butterfly with the multi-coloured rhinestones. Thanks for playing along at ATCAS. xx

    I’d say that butterfly is pretty fancy with her gem studded attire. The matching rainbow strip must make her feel special, which this card is.

    I really really like that rainbow you made. And, now smart, now you still have some more of it left. Looks fantastic as a perch for that happy butterfly.

  11. Petra

You are so talented and I have to say again – a brilliant CAS artist!!!! You make the most beautiful cards, Anita!!!!

    This is the kind of card I associate with you Anita – a real softness. Both of your recent posts are lovely but I especially like this card. I really like the AveryElle sentiments and font style. Have a great week. Barb
