I have a soft spot in my heart for Papertrey Ink. I stumbled upon the company sometime in 2008 I believe and have been a fan ever since. I love how cleverly designed and thoughtfully crafted their products are. I have spoken of them so often I receive gift certificates from them for birthdays (thank you to my sister for this year's birthday gift which is just in time for their anniversary release) and Valentine's Day (no flowers, chocolate or diamonds for me...give me craft supplies thank you very much!) . From February 5th - February 15th they are celebrating 6 years.
Their first day of festivities focused upon the their design team. I also find their design team to be well...stellar. I think I have mentioned Betsy Veldman at least once as well as Maile Belles, but each member really puts a lot of heart and talent into their creations month after month. For more information about today's celebrations check HERE.
I decided to pick this project from Jessica Witty as my inspiration:
I love the pops of color against the strong black and white graphic design with a touch of ombre, gold and typography for a trendy and classy card.
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery then I hope Jessica Witty is very flattered by this card:

And a close up:
Many thanks to Jessica Witty for her inspiring card and for the whole Papertrey Ink's Design Team!
