Etsy Inspired Challenge #57
Happy Saturday, friends! As I've already shared, I am so excited to be the Guest Designer for the Etsy Inspired Challenge for the month of October!
This week's inspiration comes from Kharliebug, a fantastic little shop full of super-cute handbags! I loved the positioning of the buttons on the bag featured below, so I used it as the inspiration for my card:
I used the brand new Cosmo Cricket Nutmeg papers for the patterned paper, and I "sewed" it onto my card using the OBP Zigzag Stitch stamp (so cool!). The sentiment, "Wonderful...you" comes from the Unity store kit for October, also called Wonderful...you! Let me tell you, I LOVE this fabulous set! The buttons (Dark Chocolate) and linen button thread are Papertrey Ink, and the paper (Dusty Durango) and ink (Chocolate Chip) are both Stampin' Up! I rounded the bottom two corners to give a purse-like feel. I love my bows tied through the button holes...a fun touch, I think! :)
Limelight Papercrafts just so happens to be the sponsor this week! ;) We are offering up what I used on my card! A lucky winner will receive the Cosmo Cricket Nutmeg Mini Deck AS WELL AS the Nutmeg 6" Ready Set Chipboard!
Be sure to play along with us!! After you've been EtsyInspired at Kharliebug, jump on over to the EtsyInspired blog and post your creation from the EIC post #57. If you post on an online gallery, please use EIC57. You have until next Friday, October 16 at Noon PST to play along!
