Papertrey Feb Blog Hop!

This card was inspired by Betsy, I love her cards. They have such a vintage/shabby chic look. I have tried several times to make cards like hers and they just do not seem to work. I can never get the same results with the mixed pattern paper and embellishments. I guess just not my style. So I just enjoy looking at hers! Here is my take on her card located HERE
it is the card with the butterfly and leaf.
