July Papertrey Bloghop

Happy Monday! Today is also the 25th of the month so that means it is time for another Papertrey Bloghop.

This month we were to use this photo for inspiration.

This is what I came up with

My inspiration for this card came from the colors, quilt and pillow with the butterflies.
I started by punching out different patterned papers from
Tracy ann Digital Art and essentiallySCRAPN Etsy shops. Next I pieced them together then machine quilted them. After that I added the border then matted the quilt square on Orange Zest Cardstock that I embossed with a Moroccan Screen design. To finish it off I added different colored butterflies that I cut using the Fly Away die and added tiny pearls to the middles.
I look forward to seeing what everyone else has come up with now. As always thanks for stopping by and I hope your week is a great one.
