EtsyInspired #88 ~ Creation Designs

Alright, so I am totally late on this week's EtsyInspired challenge. Again, I blame the internet issues I've been having. Rude. Anyhow, the shop for this week is Creation Designs. This shop sells vintage items and items that are made from vintage things like wind chimes, jewelry, and wall hangings. (Did you know that you can buy vintage on Etsy? It's allowed along with handmade items and supplies to make/package your items.) I really like how this shop repurposes the lovely vintage things in a way that you can display them for everyone to see. Seriously, why would you just want to put your gorgeous vintage spoons in a drawer where no one can see them? This week's shop is offering a $20 gift certificate as one of the prizes.

This week, one of my FAVORITE online stores is sponsoring the challenge! Limelight Papercrafts!! They have an amazing selection of the BEST stuff from card making and scrapping like Basic Grey, May Arts Ribbon, Unity Stamps, Lawn Fawn Stamps, etc... Love this shop! Mandy is offering one lucky winner Basic Grey Max and Whiskers buttons and epoxy stickers! Super cute!

All you have to do is play along...
- Visit Creation Designs and find an item that inspires you
- Create a project of your own based off that inspiration
- Link your project up on the

Here's my card for this week. It's inspired by the picture above. The paper here is Basic Grey Indian Summer. The stamp is from Ippity's The Simple Things. I used the EBTKS sketch for this card as well as doing Jessica Witty's phone book challenge.
