CAS-UAL Fridays #106 and CASology #50

 
I haven't played along with CAS-UAL Fridays in a long time, so today I spent some time with their challenge #106. The theme is Over the Edge...now what can I hang off the edge of my card? Flowers? No. Leaves? No. How about some cute butterflies? That sounds like an idea to me. My sister is having a birthday on Sunday and she loves not only butterflies, but the color purple, so those are the elements I decided to use. As I brought out the butterfly stamps, I remembered that this week's CASology #50 challenge cue word is "Free" and for some reason the butterflies seemed to fit this cue word, so lucky me...one card for two challenges.
I die cut some PTI Beautiful Butterflies and stamped the cut out portion with WM Woodgrain. I think Woodgrain looks good on everything, even butterflies! The sentiment is also from Beautiful Butterflies and I used a Cuttlebug Sheet Music embossing folder. The butterflies are scored alongside their bodies and added with scor-tape. I don't have a lot of embellishments here with me, but I did have some pearls, so I lined up a few for the butterfly bodies and think they add a little elegant touch to the butterflies. So what do you think you can hang over the edge of a card? Something that also reminds you of the word "free"? If so, get hopping and make a card for this weeks CAS-Ual Fridays and Casology #50...this was a fun one!

Now, I have that Elton John song stuck in my head! This is a wonderful card, and just perfect for both challenges. I have several woodgrain stamps and IP's, and I cannot believe you are making me think I need another one..

Beautiful - they look like they're about to take off - perfectly free! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CASology this week!

Fabulous--they look just like they are flying off your card--perfect for illustrating 'free'! And the purple and embossing look gorgeous!

Cathy, this is so beautiful and I am sure your sister will love it. I love what you did with those butterflies, so clever and on that music embossed background, stunning!

What a pretty design Cathy! love the die cut popped up butterflies over the edge and the embossed music is so fun for a b'day card - makes you just start singing Happy Birthday!!

Oooh, how pretty with all that texture and floating butterflies! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CAS-ual Fridays this week!
