CAS butterfly adventure

When I saw the beautiful design team cards at Color Throwdown Monday, I was inspired to play along.  I especially loved the stenciling several of them used, and thought I should try that, because it would fit the then-current challenge at CAS on Sunday.  But I didn't think I had any "lime" and couldn't make up my mind about the other components, either, until just before I fell asleep last night, when it all came to me:
stamp set - Another Thank You; ink - Bermuda Bay, Cucumber Crush; card stock - Cucumber Crush, Whisper White thick; stencil - Happy Patterns; Big Shot with Bold Butterfly framelit; Stampin' sponge

Of course, the CAS on Sunday challenge closed Friday.  :(  This is one of my best efforts (if I do say so myself) at Clean and Simple, and it doesn't qualify at any current CAS challenges.  I'm going to try sneaking it in for "As You Wish April" at One Layer Simplicity though, on the chance that the butterfly is "a bit of embellishment" and not a layer?

This is far too perfect to be disqualified for a butterfly, LOL! Gorgeous layout, color, and design. Thanks for sharing it with the OLS Challenge!
