CASE, CAS, Metal and Embossing

Today I have a clean and simple card to share. I was inspired by the CASE card over at Time Out and I also wanted to make a card for Twofers, where the theme is to use metal, and as always you need to use rubber or clear stamps.

I started out sponging with purple ink, then I used an unused corner stamp from Kort&Godt with dark grey ink. I added white and gold frantage and some metal thread I got from Mimi of She's Crafty (thank you Mimi!) I heat embossed some butterflies on vellum, using gold EP and stamps from Bo Bunny, I believe it was the first time they saw ink. It feels really good to use some of the treasures I have in my stash...

This card is for:
Twofers - #12 Metal
TIME OUT Challenges - #47 Case
Craft Rocket Challenges - #7 Clean & Simple
Moving along with the Times - #12 Embossing

I think this is my favourite Pia card. I adore the purple and corner stamp, great combo and you know I always love the frantage...great texture. The butterflies embossed are superb on the vellum, it allows us to see that gorgeous background. I especially like you didn't go with flowers as in Marika's stunning cars. Fabulous twist. I am so pleased you joined us at TO, enjoy the rest of the weekend x
