Etsy #100


I am so thrilled to help the Etsy Inspired Challenge Blog celebrate their 100th inspiration challenge! There is a FANTASTIC store full of inspiration this week! You are sure to find plenty of beautiful things at Cathy Walters' Etsy shop! And along with that, there are fabulous prizes to be one! Limelight is offering up winner's choice of one Webster's Pages Bloomers AND Fabric Fancies to one lucky participant!


My card was inspired by this gorgeous pendant. I may have to buy it. Oh, and this one:



Anyway. ;) I simply began with a Kraft cardstock base and layered on some Webster's Pages patterned paper. I stitched on a sentiment from a past Unity store kit, which I stamped in True Black on Kraft cardstock. The butterfly, a perfect addition to a simple card, was punched with Pure Poppy cardstock and accented with Silver Rhinestones. I actually punched two butterflies and layered for dimension.
Please play along! Can't wait to see what you create!!
