EtsyInspired #31.................Melanie's Flowers!!!!

Smiley from

It's a beeeeeeeautiful Saturday!!! Which means another FUN and FABULOUS EtsyInspired Challenge from our adorable Ashley!!! She picked Misspottery's ETSY Shop for today. I loved many of the floral designs and soft pink that I saw!!

  • Stamps: A Year Of Flowers
  • Paper: Gina K. Pure Luxury White, SU Pink Pirhouette
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Pink Pirhouette
  • Accessories: Hardware, Gems, Ribbon, Shimmerz

I really did keep this card very simple!!! Are you surprised?? LOL I just stamped 2 Daisies from the Gina K. stamp set A Year Of Flowers designed by the talented Melanie Muenchinger (yep, I got to meet and spend time with her too!!!!) and then cut them out, colored them very lightly with Pink Pirhouette and Niji Waterbrush. I used the AWESOME Pure Luxury cardstock Gina carries!!! I added some Shimmerz to the centers. Just a bit of cuttlebugging and ribbon and hardware......VOILA!!! A simple card for any occasion!!

Now check out all the deets on Ashley's Blog on how you can play along and be put into a drawing for a wonderful prize!!! Make sure you post your challenge back to Ashley's Blog in time!!!! Ashley will also have a sample for you to help get your mojo flowin' as will all the Etsy Girls.........stop by their blogs:
