A Muse Congratulations

Already Monday and another Muse.  I did not get to play with Michele's wonderful blue inspiration last week and this week it's Marion Vagg with another   inspiring card and it's blue too.  It is a colour that I do not often create with, but I had some water coloured paper that I had used a couple of blues and a grey (black soot) and Mr. Huey's Blizzard spray on a couple of weeks ago and the butterflies were calling me...
I am currently making up some graduation cards amidst all of the sawing, hammering and comings and goings of the construction crew at the house.  It has been a crazy couple of weeks here.
Here is Marion's card

and here is mine
I started by using a PTI tag die that I cut from white linen CS from my stash and then used a Memory Box teeny butterflies die across the top of the tag.  I stamped a PTI sentiment in Smokey Shadow across the bottom part of the tag and then inlaid the butterflies that I had cut from my water coloured sheet.  I also cut a graduation cap from Smokey Shadow and affixed over the circle fastener on the tag.  The CS front is SU Baja Blue and I used a polka dot EF on it.  The little grey and white polka dot strip is a scrap piece that I added for a little foundation.  Pretty easy from this wonderful inspiration!  I think I will make up another with some pink and coral butterflies :)
Thanks for stopping in and have a great Monday!
