CAS Friday entry: Punchy

Hey guys - it's been a long time since I have created anything!  I have to say that it's great to be back, and inspired again!  About once a year, I lose my mojo.   I hope the following card shows that I have found my mojo!  I've been very active on pinterest, and found inspiration from Jennifer McGuire's blog (see here http://www.jennifermcguireink.com/2012/04/rainbow-bright.html).  I had a new EK success die cut that I have been dying to use, but couldn't figure out just how.  So now I have the inspiration for my new die cut, and along comes CAS Fridays challenge (http://www.cas-ualfridays.blogspot.com/)!  I don't think things could have aligned up any better!

Anyway, here is my card.  I hope you enjoy!

I cut out the butterfly die cut out of white paper.  I colored the outline black, and then colored in the butterflies.  To provide additional dimension, I folded up their wings, and added a little bling.

  3. What a great idea to color the punched border for a rainbow effect! The butterflies really pop against the black. Thanks for joining us this week at CAS-ual Fridays!
