 Did you notice the new Blue Raspberry cardstock!  Just stunning in real life!
And, here is my sample for today's hop
I just LOVE LOVE LOVE this butterfly.  So easy to color!  I used the CAS sketch from CPS-Card Sketches #224.  To late to enter the card, but the sketch was perfect for focusing on this gorgeous butterfly!
That's it for me.  As stated above, I had a fabulous time creating cards for your enjoyment.  I sure hope we have inspired you in some way!  
Thanks for stopping by ~

I like how you designed the first card with the various items used in the layering of the card. The colors just pop with the butterfly added as the extra wow factor.
I like the 2nd card because the butterfly colors are so nice with the red scalloped circle behind it. Simple but elegant!

Nice cards.

Joni said...

One of my favorites tonight among so many gorgeous cards. Might have to get me some blue Raspberry paper. Reminds me of a blue raspberry sno- cone

Diane said...

The blue and red are really striking. Blue raspberry is fast becoming one of my favorites! Really like your color choices.

Bernadet Rodakowski said...

WOW! Both are stunners, but for me the second just edges out the first. The juxtaposition of such bold colors against the "neutral" kraft is awesome!
