Tonight is Papertrey’s monthly Blog Hop! This month’s theme was to create a card that was inspired by a Design Team member. Papertrey has such an awesome design team, I’m sure anyone could find inspiration!
I think I am most in awe of Betsy Veldman (Blog & PTI Gallery). Her style is very very very different than my own, but it is always so full of detail that every time I look at something she’s created I find something new to ooh and ahh at!
I couldn’t pick just one of her cards to “copy” because I’d never come close. So I made a list of things she seems to do frequently and then I tried to incorporate them into a card of my own.
I really love how this card turned out. I’m not sure I could spend so much time on every card I made (since this stuff isn’t second nature to me, it took me hours to make this card), but once in a while I will definitely be pulling out my “Betsy List” again!
