Etsy Inspiration #66

Good Morning & Happy Saturday Everyone!
Welcome to another Etsy day!!!!  Our featured shop this week is called Marmar and he specializes in making cute & whimsical enamel jewelry.  I enjoyed my *stroll* looking for my inspiration & I'm sure you will too so go and check him out!  He has offered those adorable rabbit necklaces pictured above as the prize for this week's winner & since our sponsor for the week is Character Cafe; that winner will also receive 3 free digis of their choice!!  How do you win?  Visit the above shop, pick your inspiration, make whatever creation your heart desires & link it to the EtsyInspired Challenge Blog.

While *strolling* through the shop; I saw the blue necklace pictured above and immediately thought about the cards that I made for my son the other day!  The swirls reminded me of the texture from that petals embossing folder and of course I HAD to use my fave shade of blue---Night of Navy to pull it all together!  I think of this card as a *step up* compared to Reggie's cards & I'm pretty happy with the way it came out!  I hope you enjoy it & the rest of the Design Team's samples:
