Freshly Made Sketches - #187 & Happy Little Stampers May CAS Challenge

Today's card.

Is for the Freshly Made Sketches #187 - A Sketch by Cindy L

and Happy Little Stampers May CAS Challenge, which is for die-cuts/punches, as it uses mostly die cuts - both, positive and negative.

First, I cut out the Marianne Designs, 'Brick' die and used the negative cut-outs for the border strip and then added my watercolour butterfly on foam tape for added dimension, this is almost a one layer card, except for the die-cuts.

I finished it off with a sentiment from Mama Elephant's, 'In My Heart' stamp set and three SSS, 'Moonshine' sequins.

Here are the rest of the pictures.

As always, thank you so much for making my day with your visits and comments!  Have a lovely evening/day!  Hazel xx
