Good Saturday Morning Everyone!
Wow, what a week for me!!! I've been dealing with a sick child & Dr. appt.'s right along with working......I really had NO time to post anything and I do apologize.
My post for today is for the Etsy Inspired Challenge and the shop for this week is called Amethyst Soaps. Her store features handcrafted soaps in really beautiful designs so be sure to stop by to find your inspiration. This week's lucky winner will receive the 3 soaps pictured above and our sponsor for this week *Cutting Cafe* is also giving away 3 sets of the winner's choice!! For your chance to win; visit the above shop, pick your inspiration, make whatever creation your heart desires and link it to the EtsyInspired Challenge blog.
The picture that I chose reminded me of a sunset so that's what I tried to visualize in my card. Lots of sponging, masking & highlighting later; I think I'm pretty pleased with the outcome & I hope you are too! Check out the rest of the Design Team's work to see they're beautiful creations as well:
