delightfully fun

Happy Wednesday friends!  Many thanks for all your fabulous comments on my fun Moxie Fab shout out this week. I've got two cards to share today, both with the August Artful Delight card kit.  The first one was inspired by Lynn talking about using up paper scraps and since I had so many fabulous papers to chose from with the kit I decided to try my hand at this week's CAS-ual Fridays "Banners and Flags" challenge.  I love that my CAS card uses all goodies form the card kit, the only item I added was the corner rounder punch and the double sided banner die, delightfully fun indeed.

And this neutral toned card has a similar feel to last week's Artful Delight card (similar layout), but I love the romantic feel of it.  I also feel like the butterfly is going to take off and fly away, perfect for the Moxie Fab World movement challenge.  And if you missed Leeann's reveal for the September card kit here's another sneak peak.

I am with Karen! So glad you could play with us at CAS-ual Fridays...but the second one I LOVE. The color combo is gorgeous and so elegant!

Kara Lynne said...

I love the colors, papers, and the shapes on the first card. You picked just the right place to cut that patterned paper for the middle banner. I love the placement of the black elements on the second card. That's a great sentiment!
