Inspiration from Paper Crafts Magazine - Day 2

Welcome back to our Inspiration Challenge.  My blogging buddy, Lindsey, and I decided to use the Paper Crafts magazine (Sept/Oct) as inspiration.  We both picked cards and used them as inspiration to create our own cards.  Yesterday we showcased the card Lindsay picked.  Today is my turn.  I picked this lovely card by Betsy Veldman called Doily Gratitude Card (on page 56). 

I focused on the masked and sprayed background, the cluster of embellishments, and the sentiment.
Here is my card:

Nothing makes me happier than using feathers on my cards!  And check out the sentiment piece - see the white rub ons (BasicGrey) to mimic the sentiment piece in Betsy's card.  And that lovely flower was compliments of one of my past Secret Sisters (thanks Linda!). 

Now you need to go check out Lindsey's card that she created using Betsy's card as inspiration!
Remember, if you are inspired by either of the Paper Crafts cards (or ours) leave a link in the comment section so we can go and see what you did too! 

And....this has been so much fun we are doing it again next Thurs and Friday!!  Can't wait!! Make sure you come back and visit!

Beautiful card and I love the feathers with the flower. Great job on this card. Love the leave instead of doilies.

This is so beautiful! I have often thought of using feathers on a card (and my husb has even offered to let me look through his fly-tying feather collection...) but have yet to actually do it. I think you've inspired me, though. Love this!
