A Papertrey Princess Challenge

It's my turn to post a challenge for the Papertrey Princesses, so here's my challenge... The PTI design team is so amazing! Choose one of their projects and use it as inspiration for a card.

I was inspired by the last card in Maile Belles' latest post on her blog to create this card:


I used Papertrey Ink cardstock (stamper's select white), stamps (beautiful butterflies, TBF#3) & dies (beautiful butterflies). The patterned paper is Crate Paper, which I covered in Martha Stewart glitter for this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: Glitter Diecuts.

Here's a close-up of the glittered diecut:


So, Princesses, I can't wait to see what you create!

Thanks for looking!

The patterned paper is so beautiful! Maile's butterfly card was what made me get it eventually. (Plus my mom's love for butterflies!) I'm going to try doing something like Maile's card & your card :)

Maile's card struck me as well, and you've done a beautiful job of CASEing it and making it your own colorful, cheerful card! (Man, those new inks are wonderful, aren't they? So rich!)
