I am so excited and honored to share with you that I have been asked to be the Guest Designer for the ETSY Inspired Challenge for June!!!

Ok- now down to busines :)

This week's shop is How Beadyful. I have to admit that I spent a lot of time looking around. Not that I wasn't inspired buy anything, but it was all so FUN I was trying to decide! Very interesting and fun stuff!!

Don't forget that when you play along with the ETSY Inspired Challenges you have the opportunity to win a prize. This week there are TWO prizes!
The first is from How Beadyful and is this lovely set
The second is a $35 Gift Certificate to Pretty Tape

So- link up and share what you are inspired by and your creation! I can not wait to see them ALL!! Here is mine ---

I was inspired by these adorable vintage bird collection hand stamped fabric buttons. I really like the way the colors are with the creams, browns and touch of blue. In light of all this, I pulled out a new stamp from the Victoria Case exclusive to SCACD Summer Collection that has this adorable little girl with the bird house. I stamped in brown Momento on kraft cardstock. I used a blue copic to highlight the bird and dress. I used a white pen to brighten up and highlight a few other items. Cut out the image with my nesties and then used a sketch to put the card together. I am VERY pleased with the end result!

Check out all the ETSY Inspired Designers for inspiration!

Such a cute image. I really love that you stamped on kraft and then colored with Copics. It gives a totally different look. So cool.

I really love that lace. It's the perfect embellishment.

Congrats on the Guest DT gig! You so deserve it!
