Papertrey February Blog Hop Challenge

Hello all!

Well, it's been a LONG time since I've participated in a PTI Blog Hop! :) I had forgotten how much fun it is to get my creative juices challenged and flowing. :)

Here is the photo that the folks at Papertrey Ink showed to inspire us:

And here's the card I came up with...

I wanted to focus a bit on the fern, vase, butterfly and ribbon, while I tried my best to keep the color scheme the same.

I hope I was somewhat successful! :)

I hope you'll get a chance to check out the blog and visit all of the other participants' entries!

Thanks for checking out my creation!
