Etsy Inspired Challenge #134 - XS Baggage & Co

Hi everyone 

Edited to add in correct amount of gift certificate and change my messed up links.  Must have been asleep when I wrote this post, sorr-eeee!! :o)

It's time for some more fun over at Etsy Inspired Challenge though so here is a card I made using our sponsor's digi image, 'Heart-y Petals' by Wax Fruit Company.  They are offering the prize a $20 Gift Certificate, luverly!

Arielle does some fab designs, you may remember this little chocolate one that I did earlier in the week, so much fun to colour in!  I couldn't actually make up my mind which image to use, they're all so nice, but I ended up going for the one shown.

Our shop for inspiration this week is XS Baggage & Co with handmade handbags, purses, laptop and EReader sleeves, gadget cases and accessories.  Oh my, I just LOVE some of the fabrics used, they are SO me!  The prize up for grabs is a gadget keep of the winner's choice!  All visitors will get a 10% discount too just by using the code 'inspired'!

This was the first image that inspired me because I knew I had some Amy Butler Lotus paper that was a similar pattern but in different colours, this is one of my all time favourite 12 x 12 paper pads.

 As you've probably noticed anything polka is my thing and this is no exception!

 This last one is just yummy colours, I wouldn't normally put those colours together, but it's fab!

We sadly say goodbye to our guest designer, Libby Hickson, who is also my teamie on the Play Date Cafe, and wish a warm welcome to our April Designer, Kimme Leach.  Pop on over to see what delights they have in store for you this week..
