Post 212: CAS One Layer Card: Fly

Hi friends :)

I'd like to share a Clean and Simple One Layer Card today. This is a standard A2 size top folding card. The process was simple enough. I sponged some distress ink through a butterfly stencil and created 3 flying butterflies. Then stamped the sentiment which reads, "May you always be brave enough to fly." in grey archival ink onto the card base. To emphasize the sentiment, I drew on three black stripes with a fine point sharpie. I really love that sentiment, its so encouraging and positive. 

List of Supplies:

Stamplorations Stamp- Trendy Butterflies 2 (Shery Russ Designs)
Distress Inkpad- Festive Berries
Ranger's round blending tool and foam
Ranger's Archival Ink- Watering Can
Butterfly Stencil from Itsy Bitsy
White Cardstock 250 gsm
Fine Point Black Sharpie Pen

Here are a couple of photographs of the card:
