EIC #109 {Lemon Kissed}

Hello, friends:}

Welcome back!! It's challenge day over at EtsyInspired! This week we are visiting Lemon Kissed. What a fun jewelry store! LOVE all the colors and stunning details. One of our lucky players will be getting these lovely earrings [winner's choice of color]. 

Our sponsor this week is another store from Etsy: Pholkart Blessings. These digital images are so cute!! I was lucky enough to use them on my cards today:} And another player this week will win their choice of five free digital images. HOOORAY:}

My first card was inspired by these orange earrings. I knew I had to use this beautiful orange color for a mailbox--perfect for this Pholkart Blessings digital stamp. I paper pieced each image and used my gelly pens to accent each image (inspired by our leader, Ashley! Never really used them this much--love it!). Then I printed a sentiment and tied it on with burlap string. Love how this turned out. So cute!!

**NOTE:: I will try to get a better pic--I finished this around 11pm last night--so I will get a better pic with natural lighting in the morning:} New pics are inserted:)

My next two cards were inspired by this beautiful green necklace. I thought they looked like the peas in my digital stamp from Pholkart Blessings. I just love this card--saw the sentiment in a magazine about a year ago and knew instantly that I wanted to use it at some point. I paper pieced each pod and distressed the edges with brown ink. Then I made them 3D by adding foam dots. I love love love how this turned out:} So cute!
That's it for me--but be sure to stop by all the other EtsyInspired DT members' blogs for a peek at their amazing creations!!

Awesome projects Sav! I love how you used twine on each card - these are just absolutely adorable and who wouldn't love to receive these cards (if you don't mind, I'm going to remember that new pea in the pod sentiment for a future card).
