This layout started life as a very different idea... but I kept changing my mind... and changing and changing... and I'm finally happy with how it turned out!

American Crafts Geyser cardstock
K&Co Jubilee - Teal Florals and Butterfly patterned paper
Creative Embellishments Butterflies (Set of 5) chipboard
Therm-o-web Deco Foil - Gold transfer paper
Crochet lace
My Memories Butterfly punch
PortaCraft Mega Pack - Yellow rhinestones
Micador Collected & Co - Text Type Black alphabet stickers

I built my layout using the sketch challenge at Scrap Boutique, and took the background colours from the inspiration picture at Creative Embellishments:

I liked the blended colour background with the mauve/green tones, and I tried to capture that in my choice of patterned paper. {Anything in the purple spectrum is a challenge for me, so this was probably the trickiest part of creating my layout!}  I added a CE chipboard butterfly from Butterflies (Set of 5).

And speaking of buterflies, I was also inspired by the wonderful combo at More Than Words this month:

The most beautiful flowers in my garden are the passionfruit flowers, which offer the promise of fresh, sweet passionfruit.  To make my butterfly shine, I added gold foil:
