Etsy Inspired Challenge #72 - You Make Me Smile



Hi everyone! Hope your Saturday is off to a fabulous start. :) Lots and lots of crafty folks are out enjoying themselves at CHA, and while I wish I was one of them, I'm still kickin' it in Maryland! LOL Oh well... maybe one day! :)

Today's card was created for this week's EtsyInspired Challenge. The Etsy store we're using as today's inspiration is Sweetie Pie Tutus. They have all kinds of adorable tutus, hair accessories, fairy wings for girls, and even some super sweet beanies... I picked the butterfly hair clippies below as my inspiration piece, and wanted to focus on the colors and butterfly shapes for my card.




To be entered for a chance to win this week's prize, all you have to do is create a card using one of the items from the Sweetie Pie Tutus shop as inspiration, and link back to the EtsyInspired blog by Friday, January 29th. (Please click the EtsyInspired link for more info.)

  • Stamp sentiment in black ink, then emboss card base with dots using Cuttlebug.

  • Stamp butterflies with background image in white ink, then embellish with black rhinestones.
  • Attach butterflies to card base with pop dots.
