Thank You Card Using Cricut Artistry Cartridge For Outlawz Challenge

Hello friends!   I hope everyone is doing well.  It has already started getting hot here in Southern CA.  I love the Spring weather; when it is 50's and 60's.  To me, that is the perfect temperature.

I wanted to share my GDT creation for The Outlawz Clean And Simple Challenge; One layer Card.  This was more of a challenge to me then my digi coloring. LOL!  It is easy to forget how to do something that is supposed to be simple; when you have gotten out of the habit of creating simple cards.  It took me 3 days and several cards that didn't work for me; before I finally figured out how to create a one layer, clean and simple card.  LOL!  I hope you enjoy it. I didn't realize how much I love layering cards.  I actually created two with different colored butterflies; to see which one I liked the best.

  8. Hi Gloria, your CAS card is very pretty ! I love the border you used! it's absolutely gorgeous with the colors you used in sponging. The butterfly is pretty (both of them!) I think you pulled off the CAS card rule of plenty of white space yet you used wonderful colors. So good luck in that challenge. Our challenge focuses on sentiments and yours is lovely.
