Papertrey Ink 5th Anniversary Day 1 Contest

Hi bloggies! I'm back for a little "thank you" post. This one is for the Papertrey Ink 5th Anniversary Day 1 Contest. I am proud to say that I am a Papertrey Ink junkie! lol! My love of stamping is BECAUSE of Papertrey Ink

Their design team brings soooo much inspiration every month, every week, every day! I don't think I ever go through a day without passing through their blogs! I am really, really grateful for everything that they do for everyone. 

I made a card for the Day 1 contest. Have you seen the prize list??? OMGosh!!! PTI has always been known to be very generous to it's followers and customers. I would know since I always get free stamp sets tucked in as a "thank you" in my PTI boxes.

For today's contest, we have to choose a PTI designer and use their project as inspiration for our own. You all know that my favorite PTI designer is the UBBERLY talented Miss Betsy Veldman. Here's what she has for us today...

She always manages to come up with cards that combine stamps, dies, ribbon, etc. and make you go..."Why didn't I think of that?!". She is my inspiration. I just love her! Now...if I can only come up with colorful projects like she does...

Here's my submission. I used Betsy's technique and made it into a Shabby Chic card. It's not as colorful as Betsy's cards...something I have to work on. I'm afraid of color! lol! I just love subtle and neutral colors. Hopefully, stalking following Betsy's work will bring it up a notch or two one day. :)

That's it for me today. I hope you all enjoyed your weekend! I'll see you all again soon! Thanks for stopping by today! Hugs!!! :)
