A little note

 For today I concentrated in making a card for Addicted to CAS code word being GRID.

I used cream card

Grid stamp from Shabby Textures , Creative expressions

Main die I have no idea of origin∟ i cut the frame twice and layered over the middle panel - can't really see it as it gets lost in the pattern , Reasoning to layer the frame was so it could look like a shelf for the vase to sit on.

The vase and the flowers are all made by Gummiapan - a Swedish company

This will be entered into other challenges as listed below

 I saw the new challenge over at AAA Cards and thought I would give it a go with this card.  The challenge is a sketch with flowers. 

Cream and neutral card

Flower stencil by Sweet Poppy Stamps - Oxide inks gathered twigs, victorian velvet

Bee Gummiapan stamped in gathered twigs as is the sentiment (stamp origin unknown)

bee coloured with polychromo pencil and cream dots made by double sided tape on back of cream card and used a die with tiny holes.  Lifted the off the card with their sticky back and stuck them behind the bee.  This also fits in with the challenge over AAA Birthday challenge of Birthday Flowers

 I have made another CAS card but this time it is a one layer, one image, pale stenciling and a sentiment which fits in with the challenges stated below the image.

The stamps I have no idea whose they are had them so long and lost the packaging.  The stencil however is a Tim Holtz one.

I part stamped the butterfly off the card using Archival ink in Coffee and used for the sentiment

I used scattered straw oxide ink the the stencil

In flight..

 Yes another butterfly, just cannot resist them lol

I did not know how I was going to use this die but then
Cut the die twice across each other
Backed half with lilac and other pale green
Die cut the butterfly in each of the colours, dissected in half and placed them over their opposite colours. Found a butterfly body from my memory box butterfly.
Both dies I have no idea as to their origins
Did not put sentiment on as of yet if at all - may just use it for any occasion

Dotty flutterby

 I used a dotty corner stamp stamped twice using tattered rose oxide ink pad to create the rectangle, in opposite directions of course. Stamp by Creative expressions, Shabby Textures.

Butterfly die cannot remember origin (so many butterflies in my stash) I die cut it out of a scrap digital image I did not like however it has not gone to waste.
Sentiment origin unknown

Lilys and flutterby

 Today's effort has taken me ages to get a decent picture and threw in the towel with the words what the heck - dark and light background, lightbox no light box you name it I tried it,,,, probably my eyes have a murky film over them lol.

Anyhow I used
300gsm smooth cardstock by Craftuk
I used my favourite lily image from pngwing and intergrated 2 butterflies also from the same site
Printed it out twice as intentions were to cut an aperture however it did not end that way. I die cut one image with a memory box butterfly and matched it up over the top. It may look a little off but believe me it is lined up perfectly when butterfly lies flat.
Out of the remainder where I had die cut I used my fave butterfly punch and cut it twice out of the lily. Placed it at end of sentiment of which was composed in word Font Donuts and cookies
