Color Dare #486 Recipe 3,2,1 Color Challenge - Any Occasion Note Card

This is my Design Team card for ColorMyHeart Color Dare Challenge #458 "Recipe 3-2-1" using one of my favorite floral patterned papers from CTMH "Every Little Thing" paperpack and card base in Wisteria cardstock.  The floral patterned paper included 3 CTMH color choices (Wisteria, Mint and Julep) and neutrals (black and white) and used Glitter for my Butterfly.  I thought this challenge would be pretty challenging but all you need is a patterned paper with your three colors and neutrals and a little glitter or metallic.  

The sketch for Try Stampin' on Tuesday's Challenge #545 provided inspiration for my card. Based on the sketch, I decided to go with a Clean and Simple style but as I developed my design I found myself being led in a different direction. I kept tweaking my CAS design, adding floral paper, and omitting the white space usually associated with CAS cards. While keeping the layers to a minimum, I added the sparkly butterfly. So I see my card as an "Enhanced CAS" style and I am pleased with the result.  

On the inside white cardstock was cut for sentiment and/or personal note for any occasion and layered with a scalloped frame using Wisteria cardstock. In the corner one of the frame were added a couple of the stickers included in the paperpack. Now maybe the inside could be my CAS attempt.  

Cleo has found a new spot she thinks she can occupy... unfortunately I placed my photo light box near her path from one windowsill to another.  Had to take a couple pictures before I told her this was a No, No and she just stared at me... What's a No, No?

Your card is so pretty and delicate. A great version of that simple templat, it looks amazing. The glittery butterfly totally adds the special sparkle.

Such a beautiful card. I love the pretty paper and the unusual notch cut out but it works so perfectly with the butterfly.
Oh Cleo, you definitely can’t sit there! X

Suzanne, your card with its lavender highlights is beautiful! Love the way your embossed layer peeks thru. The darker lavender mat for the triangle is really cool, too! Thank you for sharing your card and creativity with us at Try Stampin' on Tuesday! -Donna
