Papertrey Ink Bloghop - Design Team Appreciation



Its Papertrey bloghop time! This month our challenge is to review the Design Team gallery or any of the Design Team Members' blogs and find a project that is especially inspirational.Then we are to recreate the project with our own spin.

So I browsed the gallery and found this card created by Dawn McVey that I particularly liked. It also uses one of my favourite stamp sets,Floral Button Bits.



And here's my version:




I stayed close to Dawn's design but added an extra layer of paper, different colours, a different border punch and inked the edges to make them pop. I loved her rhinestone placement so copied that right down to the size and placement.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the Papertrey Design Team members for their inspiration every month. My cardmaking,stamping skills and creativity have increased tenfold in the past 6 months or so that I've been following Papertrey!
