CASology + Color Throwdown + CAS Mix Up May challenge

This card is going in CASology (# 196) as the cue word is "move"... well, butterflies are definitely on the move!  And I used the colors from the Color Throwdown #391 and one more friends... the CAS Mix Up May Challenge
I used this gorgeous butterfly from the recent Stamp of Approval Collection.  This stamp is a Gina K design and a lovely set. The little stamps are from a different set from Sugar Pea Designs called Enchanted Garden.  Those sets will be available later in the summer or fall.
I water colored the butterflies with distress inks:  fossilized amber, tumbled glass, spun sugar, and ripe persimmon.
I stamped the butterflies with versatile and then clear embossed them. 
It is not very often I make one card for two challenges but WOW I am on a roll with THREE cahllenges but I am with my friend and she recommends challenges for me!  
I totally CAS'ed Allison Cope's card using this butterfly...different colors, but WOW was hers ever impressive!  she is on the Stamp Nation Design team and they came up with awesome cards using this SOA "Beautiful World".
Thanks for stopping by!


Heart Hugs, friends!
