Spring is definitely in the air here in Iowa. The trees are budding, the robins are everywhere and I so looking forward to all the beautiful flowers of spring. Heidi's CAS (Clean And Simple) Spring challenge, this week, had me reaching for my In the Meadow stamp set.
Given it's a CAS challenge and the idea is to have as much white space as possible, I kept my stamping at a minimum. As you can see, the card base is Whisper White. :-) In the lower right corner, I stamped an image from the In the Meadow stamp set using Mossy Meadow ink. The tiny, cute butterflies from the same stamp set are stamping using Marina Mist ink. Then, I added a tag made from Whisper White using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. At the top of the tag I added the small button from the Gold Basic Metal Buttons and tied a bow using Linen Thread. The tag was attached using Stampin' Dimensionals. And there you have it, a very clean and simple design.

And, this week's challenge at The Paper Players was to do a clean and simple design with butterflies. I just had to enter those cute little blue butterflies. Just click the image below to find out all of the challenge details.
