Papertrey Ink Thank you card




Hello everyone,

Well the month has whizzed by and it is time for another blog hop over at Papertrey Ink.

This time Nichole gave us this inspiration photo

Blog hop inspiration

I took inspiration from the cream and burgundy colours, the distressed feel and the butterflies to come up with this card





I used the You've Been Framed oval dies and stamps and a distress background stamp, along with some die cut butterflies which I coloured with scarlet jewel ink.The 'thank you die was cut twice and slightly offset to give a shadowed look.

I'm afraid it's short and sweet today because I am out singing with the choir at the Buxton Festival, but I hope to catch up with what everyone has come up with tomorrow.

Enjoy the hop.

Hugs

I'd like to play along with
