CAS Butterfly Note Card for Challenges

This Clean and Simple (CAS) note card was made following the Freshly Made Sketches challenge (FMS176).

The body of my note card was cut from Lost Lagoon card stock (3.75 by 5.5 inches). A Whisper White piece was torn by hand to give the edge.

The sumptuous Lost Lagoon Stitched Satin Ribbon was simply tied into a knot.  This is such easy ribbon with which to work!

The pièce de résistance on this notecard was achieved most simply.  I ran my Lost Lagoon card stock with a piece of waxed paper through my Big Shot, using the new Butterflies Thinlit.  It's popped up on a smidge of a Stampin' Dimensional so that you can see its delicate structure.  So gorgeous.  I've just recently received this gem and I can't wait to play with it more! 

**Unfortunately, these Thinlits are temporarily unavailable.  The situation on the West Coast docks, while in resolution, will take weeks to sort out.  We are looking forward to these lovely Thinlits being available again soon. To be sure to be in the know, please contact me and I'll notify you as soon as they're available again.**

I'll be entering this card in the Cute Card Thursday #363 Challenge this week, in which we are to use punches or die cuts.  I'll also enter this card in the Friday Mashup (FM200) challenge, in which I can choose my challenge in celebration of the 200th challenge.  I chose FM1, which was one including butterflies!

Stay in touch if these gorgeous butterflies are on your Wish List (no pressure -- I just like to keep you in the loop)!
