Etsy Inspiration #139 Paula Art





 


Good Morning & Happy Saturday Everyone!
Welcome to another Etsy Challenge!  Our store is called Paula Art & it features mixed media originals for your home or office.  She is offering one of our players this awesome candle holder & our sponsor Shery K Designs is giving away 3 of her best selling packs to another winner!!  In order to win one of these FAB prizes all you need to do is visit our featured store, pick your inspiration, make whatever your heart desires & link it to the EtsyInspiration Blog by Friday, June 3, 2011 @ noon Pacific Time.

My creation for this week was obviously inspired by quite a few things but I used the color of the vase to jumpstart my creativity!  I needed a special graduation card for my son & when my downline Teresa sent me a photo of a graduation hat card made with the Petal Cone die....I just had to duplicate it the best I could!!  I think I did a pretty good job though because as you can see in the photo above, my son LOVES his card.....he thought it was sooo cool!!!  For more inspiration, please check out the rest of the Design Team:
Ellie--May Guest Designer

We're having our son's celebration dinner today....I'm looking forward to having a wonderful time!!  Thanks so much for stopping by & I hope you have a great rest of the weekend!
Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,
