Etsy Inspired Challenge #130 - Artwork by Lori

Happy Saturday my dear blogging friends!

Today I have a card to share with you for our latest Etsy Inspired challenge. Our shop this week is Artwork by Lori Lori also has two other shops here and here.    Our sponsor is Charleston Scrapbook Company. (I'm hoping the link will work for Charleston, I seem to be having trouble getting it to work this end, but I've been having a lot of internet problems this past few days).

When I saw the inspiration over at Lori's shop I really had a hard time deciding what to make.  Her style and colours are SO my kind of thing!!!  I actually used her shop as inspiration for a card I had submitted for PC publication call, but it didn't get picked up unfortunately.  I still really like it though :o)

I used Stella and Rose papers, Nestie scallop border and rectangle, rectangle scallop dies, Sizzix 3d flower die, lace and finished it off with a stamped Happy Birthday sentiment from Make a Wish by Papertrey Ink which I inked with Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Ink - Tumbled Glass

Look at this YUMMINESS...

Ooh it sends my little mind into overtime lol.  LOVE it!

So don't forget to pop on over to check out what the rest of the DT made and then check our main blog for all of the prize information.
