Simple does it

I think the two cards I want to share in this post are on the "simple" side. I always find that to be a challenge. 
 This first card is for the CAS(E) this sketch challenge so one of the requirements is that the card is on the clean and simple side. 
 I got this great sentiment stamp from Verve recently and have wanted to put it to use so I thought it fit here along with a butterfly stamp that is also from Verve.
 Here is the CAS(E) this sketch.
This card also fits the Cas-ual Fridays challenge for "Over the Edge".

 For this card I put to use The Play Date Cafe combo.  At first my thought was it was a combo I was going to find too hard to use but once I sat down to play with it, I liked how it turned out.
 I just picked up this new embossing folder at Michaels and wanted it to fit here. The flowers are a punch from Martha Stewart and the leaves are the dark blue of the combo.
Here is The Play Date Cafe challenge.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

LOVE the CAS look of these Linda! The yellow butterfly just pops off the card front and I love the liquid applique or gems you added to the wings!
