Etsy Inspiration #133 XS Baggage & Co.





Good Morning & Happy Saturday Friends!

It's time for another Etsy Inspiration challenge & this week's shop is called Baggage & Co.  The store features custom made fabric handbags, gadget sleeves & key fobs among other awesome goodies so be sure to check out her entire inventory for your perfect inspiration piece!! 

You know the cool thing about our challenge is the prizes right?!!  There's always the coolest prizes to win when you play along with us!!!!  1 lucky player has the opportuntiy to get a Gadget Keeper of your choice from the featured store & another lucky player is being offered a $20 Gift Certificate from our sponsor Wax Fruit Company!!!!!!  In order to win one of these awesome prizes, just visit the shop, pick your inspiration, make whatever your heart desires & link it to the EtsyInspired Challenge Blog by Friday, April 8, 2011 @ noon Pacific Time.

When I saw the polka dot purse, I knew that I would be using those colors to make my card!  I just love the color combo of black, pink & white with a dash of gray.....so classic & pretty together!!  I went with a more simple design because I wanted the stamp that I used to stand out more than anything else but I couldn't resist adding a bit of bling to my background as well....I'm not even sure if you can see it!!!  I also added some texture to go along with the *polka dots* theme.....the inside of my card is decorated but I NEVER take pictures of that!  One day I'll be brave enough to do that but for now.....it'll be a surprise for the recipient of this lil' creation of mine!!!!!  I do hope you've enjoyed my card & for even more inspiration; please check out the rest of the Design Team:
