Etsy Inspired #33

This week's Etsy Inspired Challenge is at a store called Opalescense. It is full of beautiful jewelry and hand-dyed yarns. She's got talent I tell you!

I actually based my card on two items in her shop:

I chose the earrings for the black and the white! I just adore black and white with a POP of color. Now - the butterfly is....well, it's a butterfly and I think just about everybody loves them. Plus those pieces have those beautiful pink beads - my POP of color! Of course, as you view the card, I would say it's definitely more than a pop, but...I'll let you be the judge.

I am not 100% sure I love this card. There's no sentiment, but I am not sure it needs one. I figured when I am ready to use it - I will add one.

***ETA - The butterfly is from a company called Twiddleybitz! They are out of Australia. I got them in a jar swap from a friend of mine. She is one of the DT Coordinators and sells them herself. If you head on over to Sherry's blog - she will be happy to help you if you leave her a comment or email her about them. Just tell her I sent you! :)

So anyway, that's my Etsy for the week. And hopefully I will create more for you tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by!
