Etsy Inspired #139--5.21.11

    Happy Saturday everyone! After a long two weeks of sickness, I finally got to the doctor and found out....I have an ear infection! Ha! Children get ear infections, doggies get them after baths, and I had one! So, after two days on antibiotics, I can now hear out of my infected ear, but I have been coughing up a storm. My students sit there staring at me asking if I'll live, precious little things they're so happy I came back to school. But, enough about least I was able to muster up enough strength to make a card for this week's challenge.

    This week's shop is Paula Art, which sells home decor made from recycled found objects, a type of art created by Marcel DuChamp during the 20th century. Being a lover of all things modern art, I found this shop particularly interesting. Here's the piece that I was inspired (loosely) by.

 I loved the rustic peeled paint look.
Sometimes beauty can be found in forgotten items

So, this shop got me thinking about items in my craft supply that may have been forgotten (but, not unloved) and I pulled out some pretty trims and trinkets.

Some fun tags, a keyhole, pin and resin
flower embellishments

 Our shop is generously giving one winner this lovely gobi pipe that can be used as a candle holder! Oohhlala!

    Our sponsor this week is Sherry K Designs which sells gorgeous coordinating paper packs! They are giving our second winner a prize package including three of their best selling paper packs!

    So, now it's your turn to play along. Make sure to visit the design team's blogs to see their BEAUTIFUL projects  so that you  can get inspired to create a fabulous project of your own! Make sure to post your design to the Etsy Inspired Challenge Blog by Friday, June 3rd at noon!
