Papertrey 5th Anniversary

Its Papertrey Ink's fifth birthday celebrations starting today - always an exciting time of the year for addicts like me!  The challenge today is to take inspiration from one of the design team's favourite PTI things.

I took my cue from Betsy Veldman's card hereI love Betsy's folk art style that she sometimes shows us and as it's the weekend and we have our first snow it was the perfect time to hibernate and craft.




I felt a bit out of my comfort zone with all the turquoise (Hawaiian Shores) and had to get family input on what colours to go with it - Fliss chose the Raspberry Fizz - but I kinda like how it out and I needed to try out the new boarder die;)

The light is going now so not sure I will have time for another tonight - I do have a fancy to do one of Dawn's too!  Thanks for stopping by.

Beautiful take on Betsy's cards. I love your addition of the filigree border.

Great job! The colors are bright, but they are perfect for a Betsy project. I don't have that border die yet, but you're making me think about it!
