Papertrey July Blog Hop Challenge

This month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop Challenge was a photo inspiration.  I just LOVE the colors in the inspiration photo!!  For my card, I used the Damask Designs set along with Orange Zest, Ocean Tides and Ripe Avocado ink.  I letterpressed the Orange Zest cardstock with the Damask Designs Impression Plate and some Fresh Snow ink. 

The butterflies were die cut from white cardstock using the butterfly die from the Love Lives Here Collection.  I added a little stitching on the two sides as a finishing touch.  Thanks for stopping by!

Charmaine, this is STUNNING! I love the impression plate (don't have that one yet, maybe I need it!?), and the layered stamping to create that pretty strip of color. Gorgeous! Thanks for the inspiration!

I love how you really took all the elements from the inspiration photo into consideration. And the patterned paper you created with your stamps is fab!
