PTI Blog Hop...here I come!


Birthday-Wishes-Card
I'm so excited to take part in the PapertreyInk Blog Hop.  I have admired all the designers of this company for awhile now.  February's theme is Design Team Appreciation Day. I took this as a sign I should participate since I don't leave comments on their blogs very often.  Every single one of the DT blogs has the best inspiration and I probably check them at least every other day.  The challenge was to go through the DT gallery or their blogs and find a project that you found inspirational and recreate it giving it your own spin to make it unique.


The card above was taken from Besty Veldman's Blog, one of those very talented ladies.


And, here is mine...not anything the way Betsy originally posted...well, maybe a little, but, it was supposed to be unique right?


A close-up view.  Thanks for looking!  Oh, and leave a comment, I know I will from now on!

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Kraft, Vintage Cream - PTI
Ink: Ripe Avocado, Enchanted Evening, Dark Chocolate - PTI; Chestnut Roan - Colorbox Chalk
Buttons: Spring Moss, Razzberry Fizz, Ocean Mist - PTI
Twine: Rustic Cream Button Twine - PTI
Stamps: Blooming Buttons Bits - PTI
Patterned Paper: Estate Sale/Nana's Apron - Bella Blvd
