Just Keep Swimming! - Etsy Inspired Challenge #97

It's Saturday, time for another Etsy Inspired Challenge! This week's shop is full of treasures from the beach...the perfect summer inspiration! Mermaid's Tears Jewelry has beautiful hand crafted sea glass necklaces and earrings. I love sea glass...so many lovely blues and greens. I was inspired by the water/beach feel of the shop. So, I found my Cosmo Cricket Snorkel collection and came up with this colorful encouragement card.




I created the waves and outer edge of the sun by using a small circle punch. To create the pocket I simply applied glue along the 3 straight edges and adhered it to the card. The center of the sun and the boat are popped up on foam squares for dimension.

Now for the good stuff! Our sponsor this week is Denami Design and they will be giving one lucky winner a $30 gift certificate to their shop. Mermaid's Tears Jewelry is also offering up a prize for another lucky winner. Ready to play?! Thought so! :)

- Visit Mermaid's Tears Jewelry and find an item that inspires you.
- Create a project of your own and link it up to the Etsy Inspired Blog by Friday at noon.

For more inspiration, visit our wonderful DT!
Enjoy your weekend! I don't have much planned this weekend...which is sometimes a nice thing. Hopefully I will get a few more projects completed and time to rest up for our busy week coming up!
