July Papertrey Blog Hop

It's Blog Hop time over at PTI!  Here is the card that I created to play along with this month's challenge.  I have been using butterflies a lot lately and after my last card I told myself I wouldn't use them for a while.   Well, that was until this morning when I saw PTI's photo inspiration!  So here we go again...

I wanted to keep this card simple so I started out using Card Patterns Sketch 125 but it just wasn't turning out like I expected.  I had very little time to play around with it, so this is what I ended up with.  I also tried to use the colors from the 3 pillows on the right as well as the stripes from the middle pillow...and of course, the butterflies! :)

Here is the photo inspiration from PTI along with the sketch from Card Patterns Sketch 125:
