PTI Blog Hop - February 2010 - Design Team Appreciation


Hello. PTI's February Blog Hop challenge is "to go through the Design Team gallery or any of the Design Team Members' blogs and find a project that is especially inspirational to you! Then recreate the project with your own spin, making it unique!" I found it hard to decide on a project since all of the DT members create such wonderful things. I decided to use the last card that really jumped out at me, which was this card from Maile Belles:

Here's my take on her card:



I was inspired by the bright color combo and using the outline flower images for a background. In place of the french knots, I used my clear Spica glitter pen to add some shimmer to the flower centers. The shimmer and the bright colors make me think of a hot, sparkly summer day. By the way, I gotta get the Fillable Frames!

Thanks to all of the PTI Design Team members for providing us so much eye candy and inspiration!

Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy the rest of the hop!
Jennifer
