Etsy Inspired #77 - United Thread

Happy, happy Saturday!!!!!! It's time for this week's Etsy Inspired challenge. And this week's shop is United Thread. I've had my head in the clouds lately and completely forgot to set my post up for today.....and I still need to get my card photographed and stuff so I'll add that in a bit.

I used this art piece of Two Turtles as my inspiration. I created this card using my ScorPal to create the grid pattern after stamping the images from Flourishes then rubbed it with Distress Inks.

What do you win?! This week, United Thread is offering up a print valued at up to $25 of the winner's choice.

This week's sponsor is Sakura of America. How lucky are we?!? They make an amazing line of pens. They have traditional gel pens, Glaze pens (which leave a nice sheen on the items), and Souffle pens (which have a matte finish and bump up slightly.) They also make the Quickie Glue pen which lets you do things like write and then coat it in glitter. It writes very finely. There are TONS of other products like stickers, erasers, adhesives and many others made from Sakura. Check them out!
Prize pack includes: [*Gelly Roll Stardust Pens, 6 (]
[*Quickie Glue (]
[*Gelly Roll Metallic pens, 3 (]
[*Sticklers, including 3 Glaze 3-D pens (

How do you win? Just pick any item in the United Thread to be inspired by and make any creation that you wish. Link your creation back to the EtsyInspired #77 post on the EtsyInspired blog by next Friday Mar. 5th, noon Pacific time to be entered into a drawing to win. Please make sure you credit the shop where you got your inspiration and this challenge to be eligible to enter. If you upload to SCS or PCP, please use keyword EIC77.

Swing by the rest of the design team blogs for more inspiration!!!
