Etsy Inspired Challenge #121 - Modern Bird

It's Saturday!  So that means it's time for an Etsy Inspired Challenge.  This week's challenge is to get inspiration from Modern Bird.  This store is a creative metalsmithing store, and it really is creative! 

I used an old sketch by Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenges for this card, it was their very first sketch.  I never did get time to play along but kept the sketch because I really like it.  I used Cosmo Cricket 'Togetherness' papers, Lawn Fawn 'Bake Me A Cake' and 'Bannerific' stamp sets, and my new Nesties (Fancy Squares) which I'm sure you will be seeing loads more of, hope that's ok!!   Where's the connection to the items in the shop I hear you ask, well my little circle in the middle has butterflies on it and they really look like little hearts, which was where this all started.

I saw this GORGEOUS ring ...

 Here are some more lovely little pieces.  Pop over and see what the rest of the DT made, lots of inspiration!
