EtsyInspired challenge

Hello, friends [again] :}

I having another card for you today--this is for the EtsyInspired Challenge. We had to visit Amethyst Soaps on Etsy. I loved looking at all the pretty colors--not sure I could use those soaps since they are so beautiful! 

I picked this one as my inspirational piece. I was also surfing the net (I know right? ME! Surfing the net!). I found some free Hero Arts brushes or digi stamps...not even sure what that is....but I printed it off after using Distress Ink on the background. The background was a bright orange...I used Fired Brick and Worn Lipstick Distress Ink to make it look like the soap. The sentiment is from the Unity August 09 KOTM. I love love love the way it turned out--I might change the background of the sentiment to a creamy orange/red...but I still like it. AND get this...I usually work on cards that are about 4x5...this is a square! I don't do that--and it was fun! I did add a bit of extra on one side with the sentiment...but maybe I will tackle a circle or shaped card next!!

I hope you are doing well! I'll post more this week...maybe even a pic of Trav and I since I haven't shared any family photos for a week or two:}

Thanks again for stopping by! Until next time~
Love, Sav
