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’ …
… 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 …
How would you like to play along with us … we’d love it if you would! You can use any or all of the words to inspire your design … and there are heaps of ideas over at the Time Out blog if you need a bit of a kick start … from our talented GD, Sue from Sue’s Card Craft and from our fabulous DT! Look forward to seeing you in the gallery!

This is so pretty Anita. Love the rainbow stripe and the pretty butterfly with the vellum shining through.
That butterfly really is so detailed, love the vellum and gem combo x
Love the rainbow of colors and rainbow of gems.
Love the rainbow. That sweet butterfly is gorgeous.
I did! and I love her ensemble! Gorgeous, Anita… love those rainbow stripes, and how you created them, made even more beautiful stamped on your lovely linen paper.
Such a pretty card, Anita! I love your butterfly and all the fun colors and sparkle you added! Love your sentiment, too! I’m so happy you’re playing along with us this week at Addicted to CAS!
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.
This pretty rainbow really stood out in my reader this morning! Love the coloured gems and the subtle sparkle!
Wow Anita, this is a beautiful card! I love that rainbow you have stamped and that butterfly is just gorgeous! Love that you gave it shimmer and shine with your wink of stella. The sentiment is perfect!! Hugs, Brenda
This is gorgeously inspired! I wish I could do CAS as well as you but everything I put together just seems… unfinished.
Perfect, gorgeous! Perfect placement of every element and love that rainbow.
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?
What a great card! Love the rainbowcolours, the white and shape of the butterfly and the crisp design! Hugs, Gerrina
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
Once again, swooning here.
Wonderful CAS card. I really like that rainbow strip!
I was sitting admiring your graphic box rainbow and then I saw your rainbow butterfly body, how wonderful Anita!
fun, fun card, anita!!
Such a pretty rainbow card Anita :). I love, love the sentiment pairing. It is so fitting with your butterfly :)). Her ensemble is classic…Chanel ?
So happy to see the butterfly in such a pretty setting 🙂
Hugs and bisous friend xox
Oh yes… this one definitely turns the happy on big times!
Wonderful use of the rainbow! Thanks for joining us at the AEI♥U Challenge!
You are definitely the rainbow queen! That butterfly with the vellum underlay is gorgeous and again your design is impeccable!
Your butterfly is beautiful perched upon that glorious rainbow, Anita! Thanks for sharing with us at ATCAS!
Pure grace and gorgeousness, Anita! I LOVE this so much! It’s exquisite right down to the butterfly’s buttons!! Miss you! Hugs, Darnell
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.
Gorgeous card Anita 🙂 the whole design of this is so pretty! I love the way you did the rainbow panel! very clever! 🙂
