Etsy Inspired #54


I am so excited that I got some good stamping time in this afternoon! It is so much of a relaxing thing to just let the creative juices flow and NOT worry about anything else for a while! ;) I created this card for the Etsy Inspired Challenge #54. The featured shop is I Heart Flowers...totally gorgeous, inspiring stuff!!

I knew I wanted to use my new Basic Grey Indian Summer papers... I didn't think I would really like this line at first, but now I'm totally in love! LOL! Isn't that just the way it works? The card base is SU Chocolate Chip, and the patterned paper is layered on Crushed Curry. I used a large Jillibean Soup Harvest Bean Seed felt flower...this was the main thing I pulled from the inspiration...the big, soft, velvety flowers in rich colors! The center of the flower is a Build a Brad (SU) with the same Indian Summer paper. The "hey" sentiment was created with Pink Paislee Chocolate Alpha Stickers, and a few Wine Rhinestones were added to the top of the patterned paper for a little balance and bling!

On another note, I thought I'd share a cute (sad, though!) picture of Katy... She got her finger slammed (and I mean SLAMMED!) in the storm door at her preschool on Friday, and Drew took her for her first x-ray! Luckily, her bones are still soft and pliable, so there was no broken bone! She's still swollen and bruised, but she's using that finger normally now! Look at her cute sticker:

I meant to say I hope Katy is feeling better soon too! She looks like she is just too adorable with all those curls! Poor thing... I did that once. OUCH.
