Simples Sunday Shadows

The LIM challenge this week is a one layer card using shadowing so, once again, I've used that theme for my Simples Sunday card.
I started by making a 'faux' frame with one of the Square Framelits - this is done by placing the framelit onto the cardstock with the cutting part facing upwards and the pressure makes an indentation in the cardstock rather than cutting it. I put a piece of copy paper on the top so it cut out a square to use as a mask. (The smaller picture shows the frame much better)
The leafy stem from Summer Silhouettes was stamped three times without re-inking to give the shadow effect using Old Olive and the same was done with the flower (also from Summer Silhouettes) but this time in Rich Razzleberry. I added two butterflies from Papillon Potpourri to the top corner, again stamping with re-inking. I wanted something subtle to embellish the flowers and butterflies so, rather than pearls or rhinestones, I used tiny dots of Dazzling Details. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments.
Have a good Sunday whatever you may be doing - I am having two of my grandchildren for a 'sleepover at Granny's' tonight so wish me luck :0)
