Papertrey June Blog Hop Challenge

Hey everyone!  I am coming in here at the last minute to add a card for the PTI June Blog Hop Challenge.  I loved the theme this month which was to create a card based on either the inspiration photo, sketch or color combo.  I loved them all but chose to work with the inspiration photo.

Enjoy Butterfly Side

I loved the frames in the photo and so that is where I went with this card.  Although there was a lot of color in the photo, there was also a lot of white which I really liked.  I stamped my background frames with a Framed Out set and Tiny Tags.  They were small enough to make my frames but not overwhelm the background and make it too distracting.

Enjoy Butterfly Closeup 2

I couldn't help but use those beautiful butterfly dies!  This time I layered a white gingham vellum behind the yellow vellum.  It almost looks like the butterfly is actually flying.

Here is the photo that this card is based on:
