Something Blue...CAS Butterfly card

Good evening everyone, hope you are well! I am here with another CAS card-I am really getting into this trend! I used Stampin' Up inks and matching cardstock, and assorted Butterfly stamps I own. I used a shadow technique for my greeting using both inks-this works really well with a dominant colour on top of a paler colour :-)

I started by doubling my tiger tail, and folding this over, then fixing the first ring with a crimp and covered this with the crimp cover. I then threaded m…
