Etsy Inspired #141--6.18.11--Last Etsy Inspired Challenge

  Happy Saturday wonderful Etsy Inspired players! Today is bittersweet, as it marks the very last Etsy Inspired challenge. I have love love loved being a part of this team. It was my first design team, and it's been a whole year since I started. 
  I can still remember running downstairs to share the good news with my DH that I was picked to be a part of this fabulous team. I have loved stretching myself every week, meeting the most amazing and wonderfully supportive crafting buddies and friends, but also having a place where I could share my work. Not having to design it for an editorial board, a submission call, or anyone....just as I envisioned, just for me. That in itself has been the most liberating and rewarding part of being part of this team. To be able to use materials that I love, and that show who I am as a designer is a wonderful experience, an experience I will miss. So, 
I will take this time to thank the gracious De and Ashley and my dear crafting friends Angie, Carole, Emily Jackie, Joy, Kerry, Ruby, Sherry, Stephanie, Virginia, and my dearest friend Savannah. Girls you are awesome, and I will treasure you always.

  Now, onto today's shop. We are inspired by Homes and Weddings which sells wine and champagne bottle holders, wine picks, bottle jewelry, wire and place card sigh holders. They're truly fabulous and this week they'll be giving one winner this copper business card holder!!! Oooh! I could so use this!!

So, this week I was [loosely] inspired by the 
cream color, scroll work and elegance of this

 Papers and alpha stickers and Jenni Bowlin's

 Scroll work design of the inspiration piece is shown in the doily 

Stamped scroll frame from Jenni Bowlin's June kit

  We don't have a sponsor, but our second winner will receive a mystery grab bag of fabulous prizes!!!

  So, now it's your last 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 project to the Etsy Inspired Challenge Blog by Friday, July 1st at noon! Go be Etsy Inspired
