Hey guys,

I have been dreaming of this card ever since I saw it on Pinterest... it's not like the card I saw but the design was definitely inspired by Pinterest... It's become my favorite place to hang out and improve my CAS work.. I am in love with CAS and would definitely like to try some more of it..

Today's card is dedicated to tejal and her love for butterflies and eventually giving me a love for butterflies. Mind you, am still not THAT huge a fan of butterflies like tejal is but moderately influenced of course. And it is CAS, my new love and does not have washi... I did some stamping and coloring... Yayy!!

Will just go onto show you the card..

I love the contrast of colors against the black... Black rocks and everything on it just looks even more elegant... :D

 Black Fabriano cardstock, Baby blue CS from CTMH and brustro for stamping
HA Antique engravings and Unity Noir ink
Staedler water color pencils
White gel pen for faux stitching
