Paisely Petals & Four Frames Clean and Simple {PP#39}

Tonight's post is another very quick and easy card for The Paper Players Clean And Simple sketch challenge #39. Here is the CAS sketch.
 I just happened to be playing around with the new Paisley Petal DSP [LOVE IT] and the new Four Frames [LOVE THEM] stamp set yesterday and I couldn't stop. I made 4 cards before I knew what time it was. When I saw this sketch I believe this card will meet the requirement for this challenge, except it is turned sideways for the sketch. In other words, a regular A2 card. Here is my card.
I know this doesn't look like the typical CAS card but the DSP does all the work! I used a base of Natural White CS. I cut a piece of Paisley Petals DSP matted with Cherry Cobbler CS.
Then I scrunched a piece of cherry cobbler Seam Binding and taped to the back of the mat before adding to the card front.
Next I stamped one of the new Four Frames on whisper white CS and added a sentiment, both inked in cherry cobbler.  I used the Decorative Label punch and colored the flowers with my blender pens using cherry cobbler and pear pizzazz write markers. I punched a second label in cherry cobbler and off set it behind the W.W. label and mounted with two dimensionals.

I added a few sweet butterflies from the Butterflies Embosslit and put a tiny pearl on each. (Love those pearls don't ya know).
I haven't decided how I'm going to use this card, so I lined the inside with more of the DSP and will add a W.W. piece for the sentiment when the time comes to mail it.
Well there you have it... my CAS card that doesn't 'look' so CAS... but it really is.
This DSP is so pretty all by itself it really doesn't need much at all.
