This week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge is to use pastels with black. So I don't often think of black and pastels together, but I have to say that it's quite striking! I love it! I started with a butterfly cut out of grunge paper and then put crackle paint on it then aged photo ink and rhinestones. Then I used embossing powder to add the "Merci" and lastly added the scalloped border. Oh wait, and at the last minute I added light blue glimmer mist...

This week's sketch over at Twisted Sketches had the twist "green". I actually had a lot of fun with this layout...once I got the measurements correct! Math is not my strength!

This week's twist at Twisted Sketches is "leap" for leap year! At first I was thinking- I'll use a frog, but then I decided that was too obvious so I went in a different direction. Leap year occures every 4 years, so I did a 4th birthday card and the zip pull strip will "leap" off the card when you pull it open!
This twist "woman" was a little tough for me at first I must admit, but I ended up deciding to make a card for a woman in my life- my mom!
