Etsy Inspiration Challenge #125

I am SO excited to be guest designing throughout February for the Etsy Inspired Challenge! This 

week's shop is Daisy Petal Designs! They feature gorgeous headbands, earrings, brooches, & more!

One winner will receive a pair of vintage glamour earrings (in a color of shop owner's choice).

Daisy Petal Designs is also offering 10% off to all shoppers! Use the coupon code "INSPIRED" at checkout.

We also have a fabulous sponsor this week--Shannon's Sentiments! One winner will receive a stamp set of their choice.


Here's the inspiration piece I chose from this week's shop. After the blizzard the other day, I was in the mood for something springy, so I selected these flower earrings.


And here's my finished card. I wish you could see the embossing on the white panel. It's subtle, but lovely IRL. I also thought the sentiment was fitting: "No winter lasts forever. No spring skips its turn."

Be sure to check out the rest of the DT to see how they were inspired:

So, are you ready to play along? Head over to the Daisy Petals Designs shop to gather inspiration. Then link up your finished creation to the Etsy Inspired blog. If you are posting your creation to an online gallery, please use the keyword EIC125. You have until noon on Fri., Feb. 11 to be eligible for the prizes.

I can't wait to see what you create!
