PP155 & DD#62

Happy Monday Everyone!

Today, I want to share a card with 2 combined card challenges.  Jaydee has a fabulous sketch at The Paper Players and a pretty color combination with the option of butterflies at Dynamic Duos.   I do not have Calypso cardstock, but I substituted with Coral Orange.


My card:

 I love CAS cards because they are so quick to put together, especially when you don't have alot of time on your hands!  The base of the card is Whisper White, followed by Basic Black.  The patterned paper is from my stash.  The focal image is a chair, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and I carefully ahered a very small butterfly to it.  The sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping Fancy Sentiments, also stamped with black ink.  To finish it off, I added a couple of black rhinestones and a pearl to the black banner.

I'm also adding my card over at Inspired by Stampin Customer Gallery.

Thanks for stopping by,
