CAS Mix Up March Challenge

CAS Mix Up March Challenge is celebrating 1 Year Old!!
Congratulations, Loll and Bonnie!
You have two very awesome challenges that I love to play along with!
I smooshed some distress inks and I love how the colors turned out.  Sure reminds me of spring and lovely pastel Easter eggs!
I die cut a Hero Arts Delicate fancy butterfly and kept it white.
I white embossed the spring greeting twice because it wasn't too white the first time (thank goodness for the Misti, and thank goodness I didn't pull off the stamp, clean it and put it right away!...Yeah I am known to do just that and it sure irritates me sometimes!! LOL!)
This is a bar 4 card and I used PTI Noted Scallop Square for the card base!

Stamping + Smooshing + Die cuts

Heart Hugs, friends!

Lovely background, and the simple white butterfly is perfect

LOVE the pastel colours of your smooshed background, Colleen. It does remind me of the colours of decorated Easter eggs! Love the addition of the white framing and intricate white butterfly. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up ... would also work for the CAS Watercolour challenge if you want to join us there too!! xx
