PTI's 9th Anniversary Celebration Day 5: Sampler Square Challenge

This was a difficult challenge for me.  I have been trying all morning to create this.  I finally came up with something that I liked.
Click on above to join in the festivities.

I used the Take 3 Die to make the squares, although they are about 1/4 " too small.  I sponged Distress Inks from a stencil on the 3 middle  squares and then had to come up with 3 butterflies and 3 leaf images .
PTI's Butterfly Dreams, Harvest Berries, Sending You & Bitty Bouquets in Summer Sunrise, Hawaiian Shores, Harvest Gold and Raspberry Fizz.  I see that I didn't add a sentiment, but not going to send as a card anyway cause I don't have an envelope that size.
