EIC #96 July 10 2010

Happy Saturday!!
This week's challenge was inspired by the beautiful antique china of Depression Glass and Milk Glass and other wonderful vintage finds which can be found at a
Octavia Brown I am very fond of vintage ware such as Bauer Pottery, Bakelite and my personal favorite, Fiestaware which is our everyday china. So, I was thrilled to create for this week's challenge!!

For my design, I was inspired by the ruffly texture of milk glass, the beautiful green of depression glass and a pewter bird that I found on the site. I decided to make this card simple, and clean as the inspiration pieces were generally simple in design, with very few froo-froo details.

Well, do we have a treat for you! One lucky winner will win a
set of 7 Vintage etched depression glass plates from Octavia Brown, so make sure to link up your design to Etsy Inspired #96 by Friday for your chance to win!
