Etsy Inspired Challenge #131 - Dollbirdies

Hi there & Happy Weekend!!

I hope you've all had a great week and you're looking forward to the weekend now! We are having a totally lazy day because we've had a lot on recently, time to relax.  It's Saturday, so that means it's time for another Etsy Inspired Challenge.

Today's card is quite bright so you may need to adjust your monitors!  However I have some pastel colours to share with you later for my Color Me Creative card, so that should make up for it!

This week our shop is Dollbirdies.  I was spoilt for choice in terms of inspiration for this shop!  I LOVE my bright colours and retro patterns so this was right up my street!  Lots of loveliness all in one place!  I decided to use this picture.  I love these bright and happy colours.

 As you can see, lots of fun items!  There is the opportunity to win a passport case, see the main blog for more information.

Our sponsor is SRM Stickers.  SRM Stickers are widely used by many papercrafters and it has a blog every weekday with paper crafting projects using stickers! Bookmark, follow the SRM Blog as you don't want to miss a tutorial, feature, challenge!

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.
