Papertrey Ink May Blog Hop - Enjoy the moment

 This month at Papertrey Ink, this is our inspiration for the blog hop:
I loved the combination of green and graphic black and used that as my jumping off point.  I just got my Pretty Peonies dies (thanks, Sonya!) and wanted to try them out.  I can fussy cut simple shapes but when I tried to cut both of the frames in this set, it was a hot mess!  I am SO thankful that PTI decided to come out with dies for this set - it is truly appreciated especially since this is not a regular set and can only be bought with reward points since it's what they call an anniversary set.  So thank you, Papertrey! <3

I stamped a bunch of butterflies from Pretty Peonies and then die cut one of the frames from the set and stamped and embossed the outer frame.  I stamped off the sentiment because I thought that it might look better slightly lighter.
 Have any of you tried out your Pretty Peonies dies yet?  Which are your favourites?

Paper: PTI Vintage Cream, Spring Moss
Stamps: PTI Pretty Peonies
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Fresh Inks Tuscan Olive
Misc: PTI Pretty Peonies die set (only frame used), foam dots
