Blog Takeover: Britta

Hello there! Britta Swiderski here, and I'm so delighted that Jill asked me to be part of this fabulous week. Jill has actually done an Inspired By... week about me, and I can still remember the squeals of joy when she asked me if she could feature me. Jill is amazingly talented, and I'm so grateful to know her and hopefully soak up some of her talent. ;) Here's the card I've picked to be inspired by today from Jill:
I picked this one because of the fabulous colors and vertical movement in the card. I love these colors together and I don't know if I would've come up with that color combination by myself. Keeping in mind the color scheme, vertical feeling of the card and aiming to incorporate some of the same techniques that Jill used into my own card, I came up with my card:
I added a bit of my own flair with the navy ink (and coloring done with copics - no blending necessary on this one!), the hand stitching and the scalloped edge but made sure to hold onto the elements that really make Jill's card shine. I hope you enjoy my creation and give yourself a chance to be inspired by this fab card from Jill as well today! Thanks very much to Jill for letting me take over her blog for the day. This has been so much fun I might have to steal it for a day again in the future. ;)

Jill here! Britta- your card is as cute and sweet as YOU! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!  And everyone, be sure to pop back tomorrow- there is one more taker-over-er (LOL) known for her awesome cards and fun writing style!
Oh, and here's a peek at today's new card on the Mementos blog
