EIC #106 {Pegasus Maiden}

Hello, friends:}

I'm back with another EtsyInspired challenge! LOVE visiting these featured Etsy stores!! This week we are headed over to the FABULOUS (and I mean FABULOUS!!!!) Pegasus Maiden shop! Oh my--these head pieces are so beautiful! I was inspired to craft and get one! I want to wear one of these--and one of our winners this week will get this oh-so-beautiful head piece [LUCKY! I wish I could win--WISH WISH WISH!]. 
Our sponsor this week is Schlosser Designs! Another awesome shop--there are clear stamps and even sewing patterns! Everything you need for crafting. Another lucky winner will get to pick 2 stamps from Schlosser Designs {winner's choice}. LUCKY again!!!

I was really inspired by the peacock feathers. I wanted to make a card for my friend who's father-in-law just passed...and I thought this blue/green/tan color story would make a beautiful sympathy card. I just love these feathers--picked them up last night at JoAnn Fabrics {97 cents for three sets!!}. I love that the feathers are not peacock feathers--but different. I love that metal peacock too. The sentiment is from Ippity's Regal Greetings [great set for sentiments!]. I just love how this turned out--simple! 

This next card was inspired by these lovely butterfly clips. I wanted to capture the colors of each butterfly and make a "friendship" card. I love this sentiment (Unity's August 09 KOTM)--it is simple and sweet. I also love these butterflies (Unity's Butterfly Garden). I don't know if you can tell, but the bodies have colored gems that match the bodies in this inspiration photo. I also love that thread that is tied around the sentiment--so fun! Another simple card! 

That's it for me today--I really wanted to make another card....but time got away from me! But don't fret--the EtsyInspired DT members have created more eye candy for you to look at! Hop on over to their sites and leave them some love!!
