Hey there! Long time, no see! I've been SO busy lately, my poor little blog is feeling neglected. With the end of the school year fast approaching, I'm hoping I will be back to frequent posting soon.
So, what have I been up to? Well, school this time of year is always crazy, but I've also been busy with family & friends, pinning (you can follow me on Pinterest here)...AND, on an exciting note, I've lost 10 pounds & counting!
Anyhoo, on to today's card. It's been ages since I've had time to play along with challenges, so I chose two--one a long-time favorite & one that's brand spankin' new! I'm playing along with The Play Date Cafe Challenge 80 & CAS-ual Fridays Challenge 1.
This first CAS challenge is to use text in an interesting way. I chose to emboss my background with text, then use the negative space from the die-cut butterflies so the text can peek through. It's subtle, but I like the way it turned out. What do you think?
