CAS at Less is More and Addicted to CAS

Today's card has been created with two challenges in mind - firstly at Addicted to CAS, challenge #10, where the code word is Friend, and secondly, at Less is More, where the colour challenge is Lime and Black.  Those colours really sparked my imagination, as I have been playing with some new dies by Memory Box lately, using just one colour and white, and I was sure this was the way to go with this challenge.  The sentiment is from a Gina K stamp set, One in a Million, which has some lovely 'friend' sentiments written in an informal handwriting font.  The Tessatina die was first cut out of lime cardstock, then cut again from the front of the card, with shiny black card then adhered behind it.  The lime piece was then carefully adhered to the negative space on the white front.  Being die cut, it fit perfectly of course! phew!  I used more Memory Box dies for the larger butterflies, and added a smaller Martha Stewart punched butterfly - I am thinking I could have kept them all the same size but I definitely did not want only two.  I'm not sure you are 'allowed' to use 2 or 4 on cards - are you? lol!  Let me know what you think of this if you visit - I'd love to hear from you!

  2. There's nothing to stop you using 2 or 4 of anything on cards or anything else for that matter, but for some reason odd numbers of things in arrangements are always more pleasing to the eye... maybe a psychologist could tell us why!
    Your card looks fab!
    Thanks so much
