CAS Summer Butterfly Card

Today's CAS68 challenge on Splitcoast Stampers was to Think Summer. Summer to me means bright colours, sunshine and butterflies - and a long, cool Pimm's and ginger ale with ice and cucumber - yum!

I punched out the butterfly aperture from the front of a 4" square textured card, then stamped the flowery butterfly shape and punched it out of Barely Banana CS. I've glued the butterfly so the shape is inside the card. The sentiment is one long stamp but I did some masking so I could split it into two. Some bright ribbon and rounded corners finished off the card.

This photo shows the rest of the sentiment inside the card:
