Inspired by...Dawn McVey!

Hi everyone! I am soooooooooo excited to annouced that this week's featured artist is none other than the talented Dawn McVey! Dawn not only makes theeee most fun, bright, and modern cards but she also has her own line of stamps for Papertrey Ink. I really am SUPER honored to share some of her work here this week. Sooo, on to the cards. Here is our first inspiration card by Dawn: I love the way Dawn has used vintage book paper on her card. Her stamping on top of the paper is so fun! The ticket frame is the perfect shape for her sentiment and seriously, how cute are those buttons??!! Finally, this card is a charming example of Dawn's unique color combos. I would never have thought to add the aqua color of the buttons, but it works so well!
Here's my take:
Thanks so much for visiting, my friends! See you tomorrow with another spectacular card by Dawn! HUGS!
Stamps: Flourish (Hero Arts S5449), Friends Definition (CG125), Sentiment (Papertrey Ink)
