Etsy Inspired Challenge #49


I decided to play along with the Etsy Inspired challenge this week. I LOVE doing challenges/ following sketches because they can really be a great way to get the creative juices flowing! This week, MelissaKate is the featured store. WOW, what gorgeous stuff the girl's got in her store!

I created a card based on this inspiration from MelissaKate's shop:

I really loved the simplicity of the design and the sentiment split by the focal image! Isn't that clever? ;) I did a little something extra on my card, however. I FINALLY succeeded at sewing on a card! Woot woot! I am SO excited about this, as I have been trying to sew for...ahem....years. That's right. A long time! But I am pretty happy with how it turned out, and my sweet husband even was genuinely wowed by the look of the sewing. Love that!

Anyway, hope you like my card! Be sure to come back tomorrow for more cards and a GIVEAWAY! :)

Stamps: Mix Up of Cuteness (Unity). Paper: SU Kraft, Riding Hood Red. Ink: Adirondack Pitch Black. Accessories: Koh-i-noor Pencils, Glossy Accents, Coconut Pixee Stix Glitter, Pop It! Dots, Sewing Machine!! ;)
