I wanted to get this posted yesterday, but my day at work was so long, and I was so beat, all I could think of was my BED!!  So, today was a bit better, although my internet was messed up ntil now.  Anyhow,  this week was my turn as Guest Designer on Split Coast Stampers Clean and Simple Monday challenge.  To get to this challenge just go to the home page, scro;; down until on the right side of the screen you see the different challenges for the week, and click on the Monday Clean and Simple bar.  Then you will choose CAS 175 which has the date of 6/18/12.  The challenge this week was this picture of a swimsiut:
Ruffle one piece

We were to use this picture as an inspiration for card....I have to admit, I was stumped at first.  Ilooked at the suit though and decided my card would be a black and white theme, with some sort of ruffle like component.  Easier said than done.  However, this is what I came up with:

The bottom I embossed with a Damsk style background stamp, and clear heat embossed it.  Then I die cut the Chevrons to resemble the ruffles.  The Butterfly has the same damask pattern as the background stamp on the bottom, and was also stamped and embossed. The butterfly was my take on the photo being a summer scene.  Of course in my world, not many cards are complete without a button somewhere, so I found a button in my stash for the center of the butterfly.
I was so excited to be asked to be a Guest Designer this week...what an honor! 

Hope you like my take.....have a wonderful week!   Please check out the rest of the creations on the SCS site this week!
