PTI May 2016 Blog Hop

It's the 25th so time for a PTI blog hop!
The challenge this month was this great image:


Here's what I came up with:


I used the bitty butterflies coverplate to lightly trace in pencil the butterflies and then I used the inspiration pic and tried to zig the butterflies in the same colors as the popsicles. I lightly splattered as well, although it doesn't show much. Maybe if you click on the images you'll be able to see it.
Sentiment is from Botanical Silhouettes stamped in smokey shadow- wish I'd moved it down a teensy bit... I mounted the panel on Berry Sorbet cardstock.
Happy to have a birthday card for one of my nieces done- and their birthday is in August! Woohoo!


I've been a busy beaver today but looking forward to hopping tonight!
Thanks for stopping by!
