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!!!!
