Etsy Inspired! *2nd post for the day!*

***Please scroll down to see my SFYTT sample! Thank you:)***

Today, the Caffinated Cropper is sponsoring the Etsy Inspired Challenge! Have you ever participated with EIC before? Neither have I, but that's about to change! It was so much fun! This weeks inspiration is coming to you from the Cose Dolci shop!

Here's how you play along:
1. Go to the Cose Dolci store and pick any item to be inspired by (subject matter, colors, layout, anything.) Make a creation.
2. Post a link to your creation on the EtsyInspired #84 post on the EtsyInspired blog by next Friday April 23, noon Pacific time. A winner will be chosen from the people who enter.
3. If you upload to SCS or PCP, please you keyword EIC84. You may enter as many times as you like.
 
This is the picture that inspired me:
As soon as I saw the patchwork done on those squares of fabric, I knew that's what I wanted to do on my card!


All the different 2x2 squares of paper were stictched to the card base, and then I had to cover them up with that big ole' scalloped circle, lol! That wasn't the original plan, but it had to work out that way! I just really wanted to use that cherry tree from the EAD Designs Stickerz you recieve when you buy the "Cherry On Top" kit! EVERYTHING on this card is from the kit except for the Hibiscus Burst ribbon and cardbase (both PTI). The "Cherry Up" sentiment is also from the EAD Stickerz, and I colored it in with a Copic marker to turn it pink, to match the colors of the card! Can you see the red rhinestone cherries? The rhinestones (Kaiser) also come in the kit! In fact, there is so much awesome stuff in this kit, I'll post another picture of the kit for you, in case you haven't seen it yet!

Lots of goodies, right? Man, I have SO much left from this kit and I've already made 3 cards! If you participate in this weeks EIC challenge, and you're chosen as the winner, you could win a MINI Cherry on Top kit! Seriously, how fun is that???????????/

Check out what the other CCDT girls made for today's challenge!
