Be Mine - Etsy Inspired Challenge #73

Oh I could search Etsy all day and still find new and fabulous shops to be inspired by...there are just so many talented people out there and I love that so many are a part of the Etsy community. This week for the Etsy Inspired Challenge we are featuring another adorable children's shop, Elies Happy Hats which is filled with some of the cutest crocheted hats for kids.

Our sponsor this week is Pixie Dust Studio and they provided the DT with two brand new adorable digital images to work with...the Blueberry Fairy and the Strawberry Fairy.

I was inspired by the colors in this sweet hat from Elies shop.

And the little heart shaped wings on the cute Strawberry Fairy immediately inspired me to turn her into a special Valentine's Day card.

I kept the image fairly large and flipped it so it printed feet first at the edge of my paper. Then I scored and folded my paper right up by her hat and cut around the image to create the card. Then I just colored her in and added the little Be Mine heart.

Wouldn't these make great class Valentines?! And you wouldn't even need to make them into folded cards. These days most kid's Valentines are just like little postcards so you could just print her out on nice cardstock and cut around her, color her in, and then put a message on the back...easy peasy! And if you play along in the challenge this week you could even win the Strawberry and Blueberry Fairies! :)

All you need to do is visit Elies Happy Hats and find an item that inspires you, create a project of your own and link it up to the Etsy Inspired Challenge blog (challenge post #73) for your chance to win one of this week's prizes!

Be sure to pay a visit to the rest of the Design Team too!
