Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 31

'Tis the season for graduations.  My mom asked me to make a few graduation cards for her (along with a few I needed for myself), so I thought I'd post the next 5 days of the cards I came up with.  This first card was designed with Stacey's Curtain Call Color Challenge in mind.  This week, the colors are whisper white, night of navy, pretty in pink, garden green, and almost amethyst.  I made the card base in whisper white and on the side used the eyelet border punch.  I then used a strip of night of navy under the punched out border.  I used the Asian Aristry stamp set (which is a level 2 hostess stamp set)...I used the stampin markers in garden green and pretty in pink to stamp then image multiple times to make it look like a meadow.  Then I used the Big Shot and Beautiful Wings emblosslit die to cut out the butterflies...which are adheared with stampin' dimensionals to make them pop off the page.  Finally, I used the Teeny Tiny Wishes to stamp the graduation greeting.  This is definitely a girly my plan is to have either my mom or me give it to my cousin's girlfriend...they both just graduated from optometry school.  I'm excited because they will both be working in the area so I can maybe get a discount on glasses???  Let me know what you think of the card.  Hope you're week is drier than mine (it's rained every day this week) and have a safe and great Memorial Day Weekend!!  Check back tomorrow for another graduation card idea.
