PTI March Blog Hop

Hello friends~   I'm playing along with PTI's March Blog Hop and combining it with Melissa Phillip's Make-It Monday Challenge.
Here's the inspiration photo for the blog hop:
The focus for my card was the soft yellows and pinks of the flowers in that pretty "nest like" basket.  

I used Beautiful Berries ~ SpringShape Shifters ~ Circle and Banner Style and sponged some leaves on the background using the leaf stencil from Garden Gate Make-it Market kit.  
I mentioned that I'm combining this with Melissa's Make-it Monday Embossing Enamel Splatters.  I didn't have any chunky embossing powder so I used my regular embossing powder but it was so fine it kept blowing off my butterfly.  Now that I've been looking at some of the other projects I got some good tips on melting it from underneath or using an ink splatter stamp and versa mark first.  Now why didn't I think of that?

 My butterfly definitely doesn't have the lovely shabby look that Melissa's butterfly does but it was a nice finishing touch on this card.  


I hope you'll join in on the fun!  You can find the details of the blog hop here.

Thanks for stopping by!
