Freshly Made Sketches #250 and a Dream

My card for Freshly Made Sketches fits quite nicely into the cue for CASology this week ... a pleasant coincidence!

Here's Cecile's wonderful Sketch:

And the Cue word: 

 
All I have left, is to show you my card!  This one honors the 36 Monarch butterflies Tom and I 'bloomed' this season - though this little one is a butterfly of a different, glitter-y color!
 
White space with embossing is one my favorites!
#MFT Blissful Butterflies, and dies; Teresa Collins' 8.5x12 embossing folder.
 
Just for fun, and to experiment a bit with my newest 
Ellen Hutson Design by Julie Ebersole:  Mondo Peony - in purple ... they're real, I googled them!

I have one more card, but I'm saving it for tomorrow ... there was a bit of monkey business going on in my craft-room this weekend!

Two beauties Michele! I love the embossing tilted panel and the pretty butterfly and I loved all the photos of your Monarch's! I just received Mondo Peony and your purple peony along with the butterfly is dreamy! Thank you for sharing with us at CASology this week!

Two fabulous cards in this post today, Michele. Love the floral EF you used on your CAS butterfly card.
As for your Mondo Peony card, it's fabulous, and I love that you used a vellum panel for your sentiment so we didn't miss a section of those gorgeously coloured flowers!

The 'die cut and embossing' queen is fast becoming the 'watercolor' queen. Those peonies are gorgeous, Michele.
