Papertrey May Blog Hop Challenge: Have a Beautiful Day

Hello!  Today, at the last minute, I decided I wanted to play along with the PTI blog hop!  It was the perfect day to do so as it was just a quiet, lazy day at home after church this morning and what better kind of day to pull out the craft supplies!

The theme for this month was to create a card using aqua & melon!  I love those colors together!

Have a Beautiful Day

I used the beautiful butterfly dies from PTI called Life is Beautiful.  I LOVE, LOVE the size of the butterflies in this set!  I really like that this one is so large and detailed!  Beautiful indeed!

Have a Beautiful Day Closeup

I had fun creating this background too!  It's so easy to pull out a few key colors but not overshadow the main focal point.  The sentiment I stamped with black StazOn ink and then embossed the "beautiful" in gold.  I really like how you can still see the background through the vellum.

Here's the inspiration piece we were working from.

I hope you enjoyed this card!  Thank you for stopping by today!  If you'd like to participate or see the other entries in the blog hop, visit Nichole's blog!
