I threw everything but the kitchen sink into this project and I have to say that I'm well pleased with it. Here is the truth and nothing but the truth:
For MIX 17 (rough and smooth), my smooth is my Gelli Plate background, the gems and Crystal Effects (very old, could barely use it). The rough is the silver screening and the glitter. For MIX16 (glitter under glass), I did put Crystal Effects over some of the glitter on the butterfly. For MIX14 (do something different and 'modern' for you), I did a mostly blue card and used butterflies. Blue is probably my least favorite color (sorry) and I don't often use butterflies. I like them, just am not drawn to them as an image. For the F4A today, I repeated the butterflies, the gems, the Perfect Pearls and the staples. Whew.
Did you know that blue is chosen most often as a favorite color and yellow is the least favorite, according to CBS Sunday Morning last week? I'm just the opposite, although yellow isn't my most favorite, I just prefer it to blue. Green is my favorite, most any hue.

I am really liking this mix ability challenge. I seem to have difficulty with it, but am liking everyone else's results. Interesting that you aren't really a blue fan. Your card in blue is beautiful!! I like the different shades. Your sentiment is awesome. I don't tend to gravitate towards butterflies either. Maybe it's because a lot of other people do. And yellow - it definitely brightens my spirits.
You should be very pleased with the results of this card. It's stunning in it's many shades of blue.
