EtsyInspired #73 ~ Elies Happy Hats

This week's EtsyInspired shop is Elie's Happy Hats. Oh my goodness, this store just oozes cuteness! They have amazing bright fun colors and cute designs. The color combos are really fresh and I love that. Gone are the days when boys just wear blue and girls just wear pink. These colors are trendy and darling. Not only that, but they have fun new hat styles that I find super unique like this darling floppy hat to the right. They have so many other cute styles like beanies with brims, double pom pom hats, flapper hats, ear flap hats, etc... And they don't just have hats either! They have headbands and shoes too! The shop is having a HUGE clearance right now so check that out! You can also find them here: Elies Happy Hats Twitter and Elies Happy Hats Facebook.

This week, Elies Happy Hats is offering up a HUGE prize pack! One lucky winner will get 1 Baby Flapper Summer Hat, 1 White/Purple two-layer flower hat, and 1 teddy bear hat. (Please feel free to send the teddy bear hat over to Parker! ;) ) Ok, to enter to win, all you have to do is go to the Elies Happy Hats shop and pick anything to be inspired by. Make a creation and post you link to the EtsyInspired #73 post on the EtsyInspired blog by next Friday, Feb 4 by noon Pacific time. If you upload to SCS or PCP, pleae use keyword EIC73.

But that's not all!! We have an awesome sponsor as well. It's Pixie Dust Studio. They offer tons of adorable digi stamps. They have given the DT some stamps to work with so you can see their cute stamps in action. They are offering up a prize of their new release, The Berry Fairies. :)

Here's my card using the adorable Strawberry Fairy. I was inspired by the Baby Vintage Flapper hat. I used the cute orange color of the hat for her hair and the other colors for her hat. The designer paper is from the Target $ spot. The ribbon is Bo Bunny. The die cut is Nesties Label 8 and the punch is EK Success.
Check out the DT:
