PTI August Blog Hop

August Blog Hop time at PapertreyInk
Always fun times at Papertrey, especially when an order hits the doorstep just prior to the blog hop!
So, having been forwarned, my card was all ready.
I used a paper bead for the butterfly's body that I learned to make at summer camp.
I know I saw this somewhere in a magazine, or online.
Here's a closeup of butterfly's body
When August's stamps and dies came, forget it! Time for a redo.
Our inspiration photos were warm fall colors, with gorgeous teals, full of woolens and textures.
This is my original card for the challenge.
The base is designed to hold premade tags, in case I need a card quickly.
An idea also pilferred somewhere.
More of those delicious fall colors in our challenge pix

Here's the same card base with another tag
Don't know about you, but just have to use the new stamps and dies the moment they arrive!
This one is Framed Out #7.
And finally, if it's a thankyou card I need,

This one is Think Big Favorites #19
Can't wait to see all the other's have done,
but hubby wants to go to lunch, so I reluctantly leave my post... for now.
