#CTC314 Favourite Retiring Punch

Welcome to our blog hop for #CTC314 - CASEing a Retiring Punch Project from the annual catalogue:

I've used the Butterfly Duet Punch and CASEd the card on the top left of Page 16:

Onto a base of Thick Basic White, I've added a piece of Hydrangea Hill DSP. 

On a piece of Basic White, I've Gold heat embossed the rose leaf image from Rooted in Nature randomly and attached a strip of Purple Posy Scalloped Linen Ribbon before adhering it to the card. Using Butterfly Wishes I've stamped butterflies in Pretty Peacock onto Whisper White and punched them out with the Butterfly Duet Punch. Also using Pretty Peacock ink I've stamped a greeting from Butterfly Gala onto a scrap of Rococo Rose cardstock and adhered the bottom with glue and the top half with Stampin' Dimensionals. The butterflies were added with Stampin' Dimensionals as well.

Simba is having a quiet day after a seizure yesterday. Not the first, but they wipe him out so he wasn't protesting at photos today.

We look forward to having you play along with the crew. Post your project to our Facebook page using the link over on the right.

Until then, please continue on the hop to our lovely friend Rebecca:
