Beautiful Day

 
 
 
 

I decided to make a couple CAS cards last evening with a new set a dear friend gave me for my birthday.  The background and saying is from Beautiful Birthday set by Amuse (thanks Shirley), and the flowers were in my stash forever (by Paper Inspiration). This set makes the cutest backgrounds and has the best saying in it!  Butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

And of course a few fun challenges:
CAS-ual Fridays: The CAS Challenge
Meljen's Designs: Seeing Spots
Scrapbooker PhD: CAS (use a stamp)
Throwback Thursday Challenge #TTCOOL
Word Art Wednesday #172: Anything Goes

I'm all for multiple cards and you've done a great job here, Donna. The bg, the focal image and the sentiment all work together so well! Love them both!
hugs, Asha

Both of these cards are just simply elegant, and that's what I love about CAS projects. Sometimes less is more. The butterflies are my favorite. Thank you for joining ScrapbookerPhD in our CAS challenge. DT - Faith
