Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge - October 2017

Hi there, it's time for this month's challenge over at Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge.

I know many of you hate the ONE layer cards - me included if I'm honest, as they never feel quite adequate enough for a card and if I've coloured it ... as is the case with this one, it bleeds through to the inside! My trick ... make the card, photograph, post on your blog and then crop it to fit on top of a card base! 

Here I've used my absolute favourite HLS set 'Butterfly Birthday' stamping and masking a collection of butterflies before colouring in rainbow-ish fashion with Promarkers. I masked the area for the sentiment too then hand-drew around the box for added definition before stamping. Finally I used a few enamel dots, which if the truth be told, are hiding a couple of 'innocent' smudges! I'm such a messy worker! 

Our challenge is sponsored by HLS and one lucky person will win a $20 certificate to spend in the online store HERE so why not join in - there's a whole month to do so!

You might even like to link up to some of the other Happy Little Stampers challenges and all the details are on the blog HERE and before you play along please check out our guidelines below and I hope you'll join us.

Don't forget to pop along to the CAS Challenge blog HERE where you'll find all the links and designs by my fellow teamies ... you're in for a treat!

Thanks as always for visiting my blog today and catch up soon!
