Joans Challenge! #11

Good Morning!
It's my Monday... back to work for me today! Weekends sure go fast! My card today is for the challenge over at Joan's Gardens. 
Here is the recipe:
  • Use the colors Peach and blue (teal)
  • Use some Butterflies
  • Add something Frillie 
I CASED a card from my SU catalog ! My card base is early espresso layered with unknown SU dp. My focal image and butterfly are from dream du jour. It's a really simple card but I love how it turned out! That's it for me... see you tomorrow!
