Etsy Inspired #47

It's Saturday!!!! That means it's time for an Etsy Inspired challenge! This week's shop is JulieAnnsJewels. She creates beautiful jewelry pieces.

I choose this set of earrings as my inspiration. The lantern shapes reminded me of the birdcage in Nina's set. If you were at the GKD release party on Thursday night, you got a sneak peek at this card. It uses Nina's newest set "Elegant Post". It's just stunning. The cardstock is the new Green Apple and the DP is the new "Timeless Treasures" by Emily Giovanni. I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils blending with OMS. I sponged some Wheat ink around the image. The hat pin and beads are part of Stampin' Up!'s Pretties Kit. The ribbon is by My Favorite things.

This week's event is extra special!!! Not only is there a chance to win a $20 gift certificate from Julie's shops....but it's also our BOGO event.

Bring One (friend), Get One (entry)! All EIC players that “bring a friend” that is new to the challenge will be entered in a drawing to receive a $25 Gift Certificate sponsored by Paper Makeup Stamps!!!! Bring one friend, get one entry; bring two friends, get two entries, and so on!!!! The more friends you “bring” the greater your chances are to win! Additionally, the EIC player and her friend(s) will be eligible for the weekly shop give away, as well!!! You could win TWO great prizes!!!

Here’s how to participate… invite a friend (or friends) that are new to the challenge to play along with you for the 1 August challenge. Have your friend(s) go to Ashley’s Heart Hugs blog, read about the shop for the week, go to the shop, be inspired and CREATE! They should than go back to Ashley’s blog and post their project from the post for EIC 47 post. In the post they should include “referred by” and your name. What YOU need to do as the referrer is post your card from Ashley’s blog, and ensure you include your BOGOs names. You’ll get one entry for the grand prize for each new person referred! The more people you invite to play, the greater your chance is to win!

On Friday 7 August, Noon PST, Random.Brady will choose the week’s challenge winner as usual. For those that referred new players, their names will be put in a “hat” and one lucky winner will be drawn to win a $25 Gift Certificate sponsored by Paper Makeup stamps!
