EtsyInspired #26 ~ Expressing You

This week's EtsyInspired artist is a really fun one!  Expressing You sells vinyl creations for your walls and car.  I've noticed that vinyl wall decor is all the rage right now.  I really love it since most of us don't have the money to have an artist actually paint on our walls.  These vinyl decals give an artsy touch while being affordable.  And for those who rent, these wall decals can be removed safely without damaging the walls.  

I really like these because I think they are fun and a fresh idea.  I'm kind of tired of the regular old framed art or posters.  This is a new and creative idea to give boring walls a fun new look.  I really like the designs that Expressing You has to offer.  They have everything from classy elegant monograms to colorful dinosaurs for kids.  

This week, Expressing You is giving away a gift certificate for $15 (not applicable towards shipping.)  With this sweet gift certificate, you could get an adorable wall decal to liven up your home.  All you have to do to be entered in the Random.Brady drawing to win is make any creation that you would like inspire
d by anything you see in the Expressing You shop.  Anything can inspire you ie the colors, the layout, the design itself, etc...  Make your creation and post a link right here on this post by March 13 noon Pacific time and you'll be entered to win!  If you upload to SCS or PCP, please use keyword EIC26.  Have fun and go be EtsyInspired!

From now on, I'll only be showing my sample.  I'm getting more and more pregnant and the post takes up A LOT of time!  So, I hope you will visit all the girls and see their wonderful creations!

My card is based on the vinyl decal seen HERE, which actually ended up selling before I could post the link.  :)  I was inspired by the sweet bird on the branch and by the colors seen in the photo.  My stamp is Inkadinkado Birds Galore.  The pearls are Kaiser Craft.  There's white, brown, and metallic copper paper.

Here's the list of the team:
