An Etsy Inspired Card

Today I created a card for the challenge blog called Etsy Inspired. Each week this challenge blog chooses an Etsy shop to feature. Anyone who wishes to participate in the challenge is asked to visit the featured shop and choose an item that inspires her. Using the chosen item the participant then creates a project based on the inspiration.

This week's featured Etsy shop is Global Child Collection. I chose 'Protect Our Water' for my inspiration.


Here is my Etsy inspired card:

To create this card I used the Whimsie Doodles image 'Whale and Baby'. I printed the image of Papertrey Ink white cardstock and colored it with Copic markers. I applied Glossy Accents to the water spout. The design paper is from a K&Co. stack. I used a Stampin' Up border punch for the scalloped edge. The ribbon is American Craft, and the Dew Drops are from Robin's Nest. I used buttons from my stash.

I have been really busy this week making cards and coloring. Life is good!
