In the Style of Maile Belles

Like many card makers, I have long been in awe of the
creativity, design sense, and stamping skill of Maile Belles, and today,
the lovely leader of her design team at Papertrey Ink, Nichole Heady,
as part of the 8th birthday celebration of Papertrey.
Well, part of what always blows me away in what I see in Maile's work
is her edginess-- both in a trend-setting way and in an actual way.
Lots of her cards that catch my eye use the edges of the actual card
or the card panels to amazing visual advantage,
and I love that!

The card I chose for my inspiration is linked here
and here's my take on her sweet design:

Happy Birthday, Papertrey!
And thank you, Maile, and all the designers for the 
generosity of your creativity.
