Ana & Butterflies

 Ok - so here's the deal... there are several challenges out there right now looking for Clean and Simple. (CAS)  So here is my entry.

Now you can't count the inside against me, can you?
The inside is a little less than CAS... What do you think?  Do I get a pass on the inside?  There are three pop-ups here for "Leaning Ana" and the butterflies made with vellum overlays.

This card should be eligible for the following
Paper Crafting Journey  and Papelitos #7 in a joint challenge - Celebrations
Crafty Ribbons  #25 - Seeing Spots and Dots
MarkerPOP #4 - Bright Colors
Papertake Weekly - Spots and Stripes
Divas by Design #47 - For a Female

IMAGES:  The focal image is "Leaning Ana" by In Style Stamps;  the butterflies are a stamp and die cut set by Prickly Pear; the sentiment is a Penny Black.
PAPER:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# Cover Wt. used for the images; DP is "Dots and Stripes" from Echo Park;  light gold vellum from my stash;  base CS is Georgia Pacific
EMBELLISHMENTS: Butterfly feelers were made with fine strips of paper left from trimming the DP.  The strips were tied in a knot, cut to size and glued to the back of each butterfly; ribbon and tag from my stash.
INKS: Distress Inks were used to edge the message panel; The image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black & colored with Copics:

Stampe Diem!
