Not very CAS

Ok, I'm a bit quicker off the mark with my card for this week's Lessismore challenge, but I think I will definitely be back to the drawing board as I don't think this will qualify as a CAS card. 

The lovely ladies (Chrissie and Mandi) have given us a fairly easy task this week (in comparison to some other previous challenges) and that is to create a card with butterflies.

I wanted to use the scroll frame which I cut on my Silhouette, but didn't like it on a square or rectangle card.  So,  my next thought was to cut out a card base, again on the Silhouette.  The butterflies (a beautiful Anna Griffin stamp) have been stamped onto white card and then again onto acetate and coloured with Promarkers (on the reverse side as I also used Stazon which doesn't mix with Promarkers).

The sentiment is from a huge pile that I have in a K&Co box that I bought as a TSV from QVC yonks ago and never use.

I then thought that maybe it would look more CAS if I mounted it onto a rectangle base:


But I think I've only made it even more elaborate looking - hey ho! I will enter it anyway!

I can't say I'm overly keen on this card, so I will be back with another try.

If you've never come across this challenge, do go and take a look, it's really addictive and the LIMettes are such a lovely bunch - I've never had so many comments on my cards since joining these challenges.

You definitely get a lot of use from your Silhouette! I need to use mine more! I love the shaped card...but I do think I like it better on the rectangle card! BEAUTIFUL butterflies!
