Fairy Knoll #4 and ETSY Inspired #94 Challenges

Today you get two, two challenges in one! Sorry, I am having Doublemint commercial flashbacks here :)

The ETSY Inspired Challenge #94 was to be inspired by something at Sand Box Studio. There is a LOT there to be inspired by. Be sure you check out the reusable gift bags for sale! I selected this adorable gift card holder as my inspiration. I REALLY wanted to make those flowers, but first time was NOT the charm. I used the blue and green against the more neutral/earthy background of the burlap.

After deciding that, I grabbed the sketch from the Fairy Knoll Challenge #4. Using the color inspiration and the sketch with Bianca and it all just came together.

I really want to show off the swirl of pearls. I did that! Not just take it out of the package and put it on the card did that, but actually drew the swirl and created the pearls with Viva Decor. Isn't that AWESOME? I could make the swirl go whatever direction I wanted and a big or small as I wanted. THAT is freedom!!!

Now go play! Be sure to find an inspiration piece and link to it when playing with ETSY Inspired. You have a two chances to win!
