Papertrey Ink July Blog Hop: be your own kind of beautiful

Hello Hello!  I love it when I can play along with the PTI monthly blog hops!  There is soooo much inspiration and fun!  Here is July’s inspiration:
Truthfully, I’m not much of a butterfly girl….don’t get me wrong, I do have the Life is Beautiful set & dies….but I realized I wasn’t a butterfly girl because this inspiration had me stumped.  When I get like that I work harder to figure things out and generally I look to my pinterest boards to help me….check out THIS card by the oh-so-awesome, Melissa Phillips.  I had to obviously change up the colors to coordinate with the challenge and this is what happened:

cardstock:  papertrey ink vellum, recollections/110/white  paper:  carta bella/beautiful moments  stamps:  papertrey ink/life is beautiful  ink:  stampin’ up white embossing, ranger archival black, fresh ink fig  other:  MT washi, ranger tag, staple
I absolutely LOVE the sentiment!  I tried to capture the overall colors of the inspiration photo.

Here are my Papertrey Ink supplies:

I’m really looking forward to the hop and checking out all of the awesome inspiration!  

Thanks so much for stoppin’ by!!!!!
