Paper Take Weekly and Crafty Sentiments Design Challenges

CAS is the challenge at Crafty Sentiments Design and Anything Goes at Paper Take Weekly this week. I saw this idea of cutting around parts of an embossing folder and raising the cut parts up to show a darker color of paper below at my local stamp shop. I used a Darice embossing folder and cut around the butterflies wings. But the wings were plain white and I didn't like that look, so I cut them out of a light blue velum, embossed with my favorite Swiss Dots folder (Cuttlebug) and attached to the white cut out butterflies. I added some pearls and an old sentiment from TAC to complete the CAS card.
