Betsy Veldman Challenge

Betsy Veldman's paper crafting style is my favorite, so a chance to be challenged by her really got me thinking about what my style really is. I think her style is so appealing because she uses lots of color - I LOVE color, she mixes patterns - I have no problem doing that, and she doesn't need everything to match - this is my challenge. I'm always trying to make sure everything goes together - but no more.....I've searched the internet for design inspiration and I'm ready to start mixin' it up!
Here's my card -I may still be a bit too "matchy", but I'm working on it!



I love the colors and patterns on this cake - it definitely looks good enough to eat!



This calendar is from a company I love, Sticks. It is a great source of color and pattern.

And finally, you can always count on MacKenzie-Childs for some fun, whimsical inspiration.



Supplies: Cardstock - Papertrey Ink Rustic cream; Patterned paper -K&Company(light green, blue-green); Center die cut - My Little Shoebox; Sentiment - Hero Arts; Gems - Kaiser; Butterfly punch - Martha Stewart; Rustic twine - Papertrey Ink; Ribbon - Offray
