Etsy Inspired Challenge - Whichgoose!

Happy Independence Day! :)

We are so thrilled to sponsor this week's Etsy Inspired Card Challenge! The fabulous featured shop this time around is Whichgoose. Whichgoose is a boutique full of GORGEOUS hair accessories such as pins, wreaths, wraps, and combs. They are adorned with ribbons, vines, flowers, and butterflies! Be sure to visit Whichgoose on Etsy and browse around. Then choose one (or more) of the lovely creations as an inspiration point for a card creation of your own! Link up your creation on Ashley's blog no later than this Friday at noon PST to be considered for this week's prize package, sponsored by Limelight! Up for grabs is a package containing Light Blue Prima Sprites, Prima Butterflies - E, and a jar of Spring Bloom Dew Drops. As you will see, the prize package was inspired by the shop's offerings as well.


My card for this week was inspired by a couple of items for sale in the Whichgoose shop. I feel like the card is a bit of a stretch from the originals! I can't wait to get home from the beach (well, kind of...) to try another card that stays truer to the original! :) Nonetheless, my card was inspired by some of the colors in this comb:




And the butterflies in this adornment:



Stamps: Bevy of Butterflies (thanks to AJ for the RAK!!), Goody Goody Gumdrops. Paper: Basic Grey Lemonade, Purely Pomegranate, Basic Black, Cool Carribbean, GP White. Ink: Versamark, Purely Pomegranate. Accessories: Black EP, SU Vintage Brads.

By the way, is anyone else having trouble with scheduled posts NOT posting??
