CAS Colours & Sketches #283 - The Double!


This week over at CAS Colour & Sketches is Timeless Tuesday, AKA The Double! Our hostess for July is Jeanne and she has come up with this sketch and colour combo seen HERE and below, to inspire your card making...

And this is how I have combined the two...

I've been thinking about activities and outings with The Beans over the holidays and with their obsession with The Very Hungry Caterpillar, I was thinking of taking them to Butterfly World down the road from us. This got me to having butterflies on the brain and with English Country Garden Butterflies clear stamp recently coming back in stock, I thought I would give my set some inky love!

The colours are nice that they can be adapted to a variety of themes and I opted to use a Pretty Pink Posh Scalloped die to resemble the garland part of the sketch. I added a little bit of dimension to the scalloped layer and to the butterfly, but using 1mm thick foam adhesive doesn't make it overly bulky. 

The sentiment is from Simply Said and I also added a light covering of clear Wink of Stella to the butterfly. Hopefully this will add little cheer to someones day this week when I get it in the mail and let them know that I am thinking of them :)

Anyway, the CC&S Design Team have created more awesome inspiration to share with you, so hop on over HERE to see and also find all the challenge details & link up!

Thanks for stopping by today!
