Etsy Inspired Challenge #33

This week the featured Etsy shop is Opalescence which offers beautiful jewelry and handspun yarn which is so gorgeous it makes me want to take up a new hobby just so I can use it! :) So, can you guess what I was inspired by?!

All these beautiful shades of blue inspired me to pull out my scraps of various blue cardstock and create a monochromatic card.

I stamped Unity's worn grid background stamp in VersaMark on the first 3 panels. Then I used Papertrey Ink's Beyond Basic Borders set to create the center panel. For the finishing touch I added Kaisercraft aquamarine rhinestones to the tree.

For more inspiration be sure to visit the rest of the DT:
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I am off to my oldest son's baseball game this morning and later this evening my LSS is having a big event where someone could win a $500 shopping spree! Send a little luck my way! :)
