CWC015 - CAS-tastic Wednesday Challenge

Good Sunday Morning everyone!! I'm so glad to be back and able to participate in this week's CAS challenge!!

This week we were challenged and inspired to create and CASE (copy and steal everything) from the awesome CAS Design Team!!

I chose Karen's gorgeous creation to CASE.
I have a dear friend who just suffered a loss in her family so a CAS card is JUST what I needed to send to her. And thank you Karen for your beautiful and serene inspiration.
I used The Paper Company cardstock for my base in Cool Metallic Shimmer Highlight followed by a layer of PTI Ivory Cardstock. I stamped the butterfly from the 2006 SU! Hostess Set first in Vintage Violet as my first layer and then in Elegant Eggplant for the 3-D layer. I also used the sentiment With Sympathy from SU!
This is going in the post box today and will hopefully bring a smidge of comfort to my friend in her time of grief.

Thank you for visiting today.

In my opinion, sympathy cards are a bit difficult to make, but you've made yours into true beauty. There are many elements to love in this card. The two layered butterfly in both the paper and the ink and the panels of the cardstock are wonderful as well. Great card!
