Papertrey August Blog Hop!

Well it certainly has been a LONG time since I have participated in the monthly hop...but I finally found some free time!

This month's inspiration colors really spoke to me, I love neutral, masculine colors. You can see the original inspiration pieces here.

For my card, I chose to focus on the Argyle pattern, and the colors.  I noticed just a hint of orange in the inspiration photos, and chose to bring that in using the little flower center.

I used the new Think Big favorites (from August) and Lovely Layers (love this set!).  I used Ocean Tides, Ripe Avocado, Kraft, Canyon Clay and Dark Chocolate as my colors.

Don't forget about the Team Nicholas fundraiser! See this post for details.

Thanks for hopping by!
