CAS Grateful Swallowtail

There a new challenge at a2zscrapbooking blog for May - Clean and Simple (CAS)!
Check it out HERE!

I hope you can join in the fun!  Just use one main Hero Arts product on your CAS card and you may be the winner of a $25 gift certificate to the a2zscrapbooking Store!!! 

For my card, I started with an ivory base and used the Hero Arts SA065 Bold Floral Stencil along with some Hero Arts AF247 Fresh Peach Mid-Tone Shadow Ink to put just a little part of the stencil as a muted background that faded away.  I stamped the Handwritten Grateful (Hero Arts D6138) in the bottom right corner with Hero Arts Black Dye Ink, then cut the butterfly with Hero Arts DI133 Swallowtail Fancy Die from black card stock.  I adhered it to the card base and added Hero Arts Black Pearl Gems CH256 to the butterfly's center for some shine!  Lastly I rounded 2 of the corners for some interest.

Hope you can find the time to join us this May for a fun CAS Challenge.  

Supply list:
Hero Arts AF247 Fresh Peach Mid-Tone Shadow Ink - out of stock right now
