Papertrey Ink's July Blog Hop

It feels like ages since I did a PTI Blog Hop but with it being the summer holidays and no time restrictions on anything I had the time to do it this month! 

The challenge this month was... This month's inspiration is all about pairing up beautiful summer colors as this wonderful season begins to come to a close.  Put together some citrusy hues along with some pretty floral images to create the perfect project that embodies everything summer.  We look forward to seeing your creations!


And here's my card. I used my lovely Beautiful Blooms II to create a pretty floral background and am therefore entering it in Papertake Weekly's Make Your Own Challenge. I also impressed it with the Linen Impression Plate to give it some lovely texture. I bought my Zipper Dies about 3-4 months ago and haven't actually used them at all, so thought it would be fun to add one to this card along with some lovely felt butterflies. I just totally love how this one came out!
