CAS Just Keep Flying

Over at Clearly iStamp the challenge is to lift a card of the person who left a comment before you on their blog. I've never lifted before, so I thought this would be a great new challenge for me. I was to lift one of Suze's cards, and I could really chose from a large variety of designs! I decided to lift her "Just Keep Swimming" card - you can see her card at the bottom of this post. I chose it because I found it a really fun card  and it has such a great clean design.
I haven't had Word installed in my laptop until yesterday, and changing to Word gives so many more opportunities with digis! So I decided to give it a go with my silhouette butterflies from Digital Delights - I tried to vary their sizes and placing the sentiment like Suze did. I added shadows, colors and flipped them - so fun and so many possibilities I haven't had until now! I added 3 pearls and a white flower that I spritzed with peach glimmer mist. The colors are inspired by the photo challenge over at House of Cards.

This card is for these challenges:
1) Clearly iStamp - Lift The Person Before You
2) House of Cards - Photo Inspiration + Any Style (2nd entry: CAS)
3) One Stop Craft Challenge - #237 Keep it Simple
4) Addicted to CAS - #19 Summer
5) Seemacrafts - Butterfly



And this is the card I lifted, Suze's card - "Just Keep Swimming":

So glad you tried something "new" and joined the challenge. Isn't it fun to get an ideal from someone so all you have to do is the fun part and build the card to your liking! You did a great job. The butterflies are great and I can totally see the "lift" in the card.

Thanks for playing in Clearly iStamp Challenge #4 - Lift the Person Before You. Hope you come back and see what the person lifting you did.
