CAS-ual Fridays and Craft Your Days Away Challenges

The challenge this week at CAS-ual Fridays is to do a CAS card using punches or diecuts, and at  Craft Your Days Away, the theme is All Creatures Great and Small. My "creature" is a  butterfly and my punch is a new border and corner punch from Martha Stewart. I started playing with the new punches on white, stamped the beautiful butterfly from Hero Arts in Kaleidacolor ink, added some gems and attached to a patterned cardstock. Not sure of the sentiment's source- sorry... But I like what it says and how the card turned out.

Stamping smiles, Karen

Oh I know you love punches and I just saw this one in the Archivers ad. So pretty and this is an amazing card. It is so delicate like the butterfly.
I got my fishing card done. Boy I think I need to get some rectangle nesties. I made mine with a ruler and an blade. I love that style of card.
