I am popping in to share another graduation card today.  This one is for a girl!  I am playing along with this week's MFT Weekly Sketch Challenge, Just Us Girls photo week, and The Friday Mashup butterflies.  I tried to keep this graduation card CAS as well.  

I started with MFT kraft and smooth white card stocks.  My card base is kraft.  I die cut the white panel using Blueprints 15.  I stamped the sentiment from Blissful Butterflies stamp set using Hybrid Black Licorice and my MISTI tool.  I die cut the curve arc from Blueprints 25 twice using kraft.  I stamped both with Fine Check using natural ink.  I then die cut the butterflies from Blissful Butterflies die namics.  I stamped with coordinating images from Blissful Butterflies stamp using colors from the inspiration photo (daffodil, summer splash, and tangy orange).  I popped them up with some foam tape and finished the card with a few clear sequins.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!



  1. Hi Betty, what a striking card! I love the shapes you've used under the butterflies---they give a sense of movement to them. The lovely bright colours of the butterflies balance the sentiment very well. Thanks so much for joining the Friday Mashup Challenge this week.
