Day 110: Butterfly Friend Card

Man, am I rushing today! I have been in a whirlwind of activity all day long trying to get my normal stuff done, and finish up all my nighttime blog crafting early plus get ready for my hubby's birthday!
Did y'all see my sweet hubby on Instagram the other day? This photo was taken by Stacy Julian (!) when John popped over just in time to win the Becky Higgin's Hide and Seek game. If you aren't on Instagram, join! It's so much fun! Anyhow, it's this sweet dude's birthday today, so pie and chilequiles must be made, and crafting must be done before dinner time so I can spend the evening with him.  So I made this simple card today:
I used the CAS(E) This Sketch #127 pretty much exactly as drawn. I'm still working on my neighbor's card class, so I wanted to use this sweet butterfly from Find Your Style one last time before it flutters over next door. I stamped it in Cocoa Ink onto some Canary cardstock, then added in darker gold touches on the edges with a marker. I popped that onto some squares of Blossom B&T, following the color cue from ColourQ #294.
Even though this is a beginning card class I couldn't help myself from piercing around the edges of the main stamped element. Can you see the "stitching? White gel pen run over the pierced holes. Even white on white you can still see it in real life, which gives a nice definition to a simple card. 

I'm off to whip cream for the birthday pie for my sweetie! See ya tomorrow!
