PTI Aug Blog Hop


I think this inspiration photo is so interesting.  I don't usually use a lot of bold colors, so I feel this month's Blog Hop is truly pushing me to be more creative.  :-)

Click on photo for more details

I used PTI Beautiful Butterflies, Beautiful Butterflies Layers, Song Birds (vellum banner) and Swoosh die cuts in different cardstock colors, matching the inspiration photo.  The Base Card is embossed with a Lifestyle Crafts EF. 
NOTE: Sorry about the night time shadowy photo,  I just got back from a week in New England to visit family and friends, so I have a ton of blog posts to catch up on ~ but, I promise to visit you soon, very soon :-)
