Etsy Inspired Birthday Blog Hop!

Hello all! Are you enjoying the blog hop so far?! Hopefully you are joining me from Ryann's fabulous blog...if not, start the blog hop at Ashley's blog so you don't miss any of the great projects! And you don't want to miss out on your chance to win some amazing prizes either! :) Some of the prizes include fabulous products from Scor-Pal, a gift certificate to Softpencil, a Unity stamp or two, and a few other surprises as well!

For this week's Etsy Inspired Challenge we have a real treat for you! You can choose ANY Etsy shop you like to find inspiration for your project. I can't wait to discover some of the shops that are your favorites! Once you pick your inspiration piece and create your project, just upload it to your blog and link it to the new Etsy Inspired Challenge Blog for your chance to win!

Although I don't wear much jewelry, I am always attracted to really great jewelry shops on Etsy. Some of the pieces are just so beautiful and unique! So this week my card was inspired by pieces in two of my favorite jewelry shops on Etsy. First, I was inspired by these pretty Honey earrings from Truly Enchanted. My second piece of inspiration came from this earthy Oak tree necklace from Lulu Bug Jewelry. And here is the card I created:


This is what I stamped on the inside of the card.

I just need to take a moment to say Thank You to Ashley for making me a part of this fabulous team! I so enjoy it, it is what led me to start my own Etsy shop, and all of my teammates are just the sweetest group of gals around! Love you all! :) I hope another year from now we will be celebrating another fun year of challenges and Etsy shops!
Okay, on with the fun!

Once you are done with the blog hop, make sure to find some time to join us over in our Papercraft Planet forum (around 11 am PST) for some chatting and more games and prizes!

Your next stop on the blog hop is the ever so talented Jami Bova!

I think the sentiment is my favourite part. The jewelry shops on Etsy always catch my eye, too, although I don't wear much either.
