They make the most creative and unique gift soaps AND stationery!! This week they'll be giving one of our lucky winners a surprise prize! Gee, I can't wait to see what they'll be giving the winner.  Here are some of my favorites from the shop!

Aren't these super fun!? So, this week I was most inspired by these decorative soaps.

I absolutely loved the black and yellow color scheme, plus the flourish is very elegant so I decided to incorporate these elements into my design.

I added a jewel to make the card a little more elegant

The inspiration I took was the monagram and flourish which
I stamped with "Embellishments" and "2010 Calendar Basics"
