Fluttering by...

"Fluttering by to say hi!"
Love that sentiment from 
'A Tree', a $6.95 stamp set available HERE.
For this card I used all CTMH supplies.
Kraft CS for the base, then I cut butterflies using the 
Art Philosophy cartridge.
I used paper from the Chantilly Paper Packet and the blue is from
Surf's Up Paper Packet.
I cut the cloud from the Artiste cartridge, and stamped the sentiment in Sky ink.
Then I threaded the buttons with black Waxy Flax and twisted the ends up for antannae.
The Waxy Flax is super easy to thread thru buttons because it is a wax-coated fiber.
Isn't it amazing a  couple of simple die cut shapes can make a sweet 
CAS card?  
I am linking this up to the 
which is to use Sky, Blush, and Buttercup.
I hope you come back April 1st to see how I used my Artiste cartridge for
the first challenge
at the Rose Blossom Garden challenge blog.

So happy to see "butterfly season" is back at the Bungalow! Sweet card! I noticed how you threaded the buttons so the butterflies have cute little bug antennae!
