Etsy Inspired Challenge #135 –Creating is Fun

Happy Weekend dearies!  I hope you’ve all had a lovely week and have a great weekend planned!

If you're looking for my Color Me Creative challenge card please scroll down.

I get to play along with my teamies over at the Etsy Inspired Challenge today, I really missed not being able to play along last week, it’s good to be back.  I have a quick and simple card to share.

This week our shop is Creating is Fun, they sell lots of lovely buttons and ribbons and have offered up a prize of any ONE item of the winner’s choice.

I was inspired by the deep red ribbon in the shop which I used as my frame and the turquoise flower was inspired by these turquoise centred metal buttons and turquoise ribbon.

I just LoVe the new papers by Basic Grey.  This pad is called ‘Hello Luscious’.  If you look carefully you will see that the veins on the flowers match the Hero Arts stamp really well.  I used two Hero Arts stamps, Blossom Art and Yummy Treats.  The flowers are so versatile in the ways in which you can use them, you can layer them up or just add little pearls, buttons etc.  I have some more ideas to share with you soon.   

Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps And More is proud to sponsor our challenge. A division of I Did It Creations, was created and is owned by Robyn Weinrib. Robyn offers a wonderful variety of digital stamps and digital papers, designed to meet the needs of all digital paper crafting addicts for every occasion.

Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps And More will award either 5 digital stamps or 4 digital stamps and 1 paper set of the winner's choice to the winner of this challenge.
