You're just the Best! - PTI Blog Hop



The challenge for February 2010 is find a project of any Design Team Members' blogs/galleries that is especially inspirational to you! Then recreate the project with your own spin, making it unique!

You're just the Best!!! That's my thoughts exactly when I think about Debbie Olson. Her blog is one of the first I check out each morning. I love her style. From the Copic Marker coloring to the layers of paper, Debbie Olson always provides me with daily inspiration. The original post can be seen here. I love the card I used for inspiration for all the Cosmo Cricket pattern paper, buttons, and scallops.


Debbie uses a lot of Cosmo Cricket paper so I thought I should as well!!! (no enabling happening here, right?)

So below is my take on the card. I love how the red cross-stitches in this Cosmo Cricket paper add an unexpected pop of color to the card making the red buttons a perfect match.


I used the new medium scallop die. I love off-setting the scallops to create more movement on the card as well. I left the ends of the bow straight on purpose since there are so many curves with the scallops.


You can't go wrong when you use the Blooming Buttons stamp set! It has so many great images and sentiments.


Thanks for hopping by! Enjoy all the wonderful inspiration tonight. ~Rhonda
