CAS Citrus Butterfly

This card was so simple, I can't believe I made it! I fell in love with these butteflies when they were shared for FREE over at TLC Creations. Butterflies carry special significance as before she journeyed to heaven my mom told me whenever I saw one, it would be her saying hello. I did add 3 little punched butterflies, so hopefully that won't disqualify my card as a single layer card. :o)

Sketch Inspiration ~ Clean & Simple #102

Color Inspiration ~ Colour Create #50 With the option of butterflies

I added a DIY border for an added element.

Image Detail
Since the images were digis, I didn't have the chance to change their color. Instead I used Spica pens to give each one a pop of color with a corder and matching punched butterfly.

I kept the color theme to the inside of the card and used up several scraps from my desk.
