Etsy Inspired #119--12.18.10

Hello All! This week's post is going to be very short, as I have a lot of last minute gift preparations that I need to finish before I leave for Dallas on Tuesday. I will be sharing A LOT of gift designs over the next two weeks of the Holiday gifts that I made for family and friends, so stay tuned!! Lots of goodness.

This week's shop is Ling Glass  
They'll be awarding one winner a $10 gift certificate!

Our sponsor this week is Wilson Designs
They'll be awarding our second winner the Snowy Day stamp set found on their website!

So, here's the piece that I was inspired by this week

I was inspired by the pink glass and swirls of the metal. 
 I mimicked the metal swirls by using a rhinestone flourish
to separate the patterned paper seam.
