CAS and PDC and some news

Good afternoon all!

My card today is for 2 challenges Clean and Simple Stamping and The Play Date Cafe

Cas gave us this sketch 

and PDC gave us this piccy and the requirements are Black & White with a touch of Green.
This is my card
I think this must be one of the easiest cards I`ve made in a long time.
I`ve used an A5 top fold white base card.
I`ve matted some black and white DP from Dovecraft onto some green card leaving a very narrow border.
I stamped and embossed some leaves from Papertreys Turning a new leaf set in fresh green and carefully cut them out.
The butterfly is from Anitas and is stamped and embossed in white onto vellum.
I raised the leaves with tiny foam pads and stuck on the butterfly.
The sentiment is from Papertreys Autumn Blessings set and is stamped with black Stazon and raised with foam pads.
I toyed with the idea of doing a more flambouyant card but I seem to be in a cas mood today and this just fit the bill.

Now for my news. I am finally on the system at my new place of work and start tomorrow morning. I`m a little nervous as I`ve been away from working life for a year now and everything and everyone will be new but I`m sure I`ll soon get used to it. I must admit I will miss my carefree days of being able to do my own thing in my own time but I just keep looking at all the things I`ll be able to treat myself to.

Thanks for popping in ...Lynne xxx
