Ghosting Butterfly - FM55 & OCC

Today's card is a combo of the Friday Mashup 55 and Our Creative Corner
FM55 calls for using a sketch and the ghosting technique.  There is a link to the techniqe over at the Friday Mashup blog.  OCC's challenge was to use butterflies.  The inspiration picture showed butterflies in many colors, and I chose to use blue, green and yellow in the form of Island Indigo, Pear Pizzaz and Daffodil Delight.

Like I said in my last post, I'm concentrating on graduation cards, so this will go to my niece who is graduating from Jr. High in a few weeks.  I think its just sweet enough for a girl her age, plus she loves bright colors with her favorite being yellow.
Here's a list of supplies I used.....
Stamps: Paisly Backround, Tender Tags from CTMH
Paper: Island Indigo, Pear Pizzaz, Daffodil Delight, White
Ink: Craft White, Pear Pizzaz
Accessories: Martha Stewart butterfly punch, basic jewels, dotted scallop border punch, in color brad, daffodil 1/8" ribbon, corner rounder punch, scallop border punch, square lattice EF
Thanks for taking a peek!
