Etsy Inspired Challenge #126 - Glow Girl

Hi there

Today is Etsy Inspired Challenge day and this week our featured shop is Glow Girl.  This is my card which was inspired by all of the lovely colours/patterns in the bags below.  I hope you get a cupcake just like this one as a treat today, doesn't it look yummy!

They are giving you the opportunity to win a regular or mega coupon organiser.  Ooh, I would SO pick that first one, it's my favourite, very much my sort of colours as you can tell by my blog!  I could do with one actually to store some of my paperwork!  We don't do coupons in such a big way over here in the uk.  We do have coupons that you use towards items but not on such a big scale that we would use a bag, well not in our house anyway!

My card was also based loosely on the February Muse, Eva Dobilas, over at the Case Study Challenge, I say loosely because I flipped the card and moved the main enbellishment, but thanks to Eva's card I managed to create something for my Etsy post.  I really struggled with it tonight, I just couldn't think what I wanted to make!  I am also entering this into the Create: challenge where you have to use border punches, although technically mine is a border die so I'm not sure it will even count!

Our sponsors this week are The Stamping Boutique who offer cute digital images.  They are giving you the opportunity to win 5 free digi images.   I am just lovin' my cupcakes right now so I used this fun image.  You can get more inspiration over at their blog.

So pop on over to check out what the rest of the DT made and then check our main blog for information on the prizes you could win.
