How to Make a really expensive CAS card...

I don't often do Clean & Simple cards (CAS), but when I saw these gorgeous little notecards at Target (shown on the left below) I knew that I wanted to recreate them using my new Bella Doilies stamps.

So I set about re-creating the look and 4 stamp sets later (what?!?!? for a CAS card?!?!), I think that I got something that's pretty close. Obviously, it would be cheaper to go buy the $4.99 pack of notecards than the 4 stamp kits it would take to create this card...LOL! I think that I need to work on my CAS process...

Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Bella Doilies
*Unity Stamp Co Be Still (butterfly)
*Unity Stamp Co. Fly Free (sentiment)
*Unity Stamp Co. swirl...from an old store kom
*CTMH inks
*Embossing glitter powder
*glue pen
*Thermoweb tape
*prisma glitter

But I already owned all these stamps, so it didn't cost me to create these cards and I really like the look. What do you think?

Very pretty and nice CASE of a CAS card. Great way to put to use those 4 stamp sets that you already owned too. :)
