Etsy Inspired Challenge #37






This week's Etsy shop is sunbasilgarden.


They have some of the cutest handmade soaps I have seen! They have a soap to match anyone's taste or any occasion. I was inspired to make my card from the soap in the photo above. It screams summer, to me! One of my co-workers just had some surgery, so I think I may order this soap for her and send it along with the matching card. A super cute gift for someone recovering from surgery.


Make sure you check out the other Etsy Inspired team projects. Just look on my side bar for the other DT members and the links to their blogs.


I used various circle punches on my flower and hand cut the stem and leaf. I also used the eyelet border punch on the side panel. My card base is white and I used wild wasabi, pumpkin pie, and so saffron. The ribbon is so saffron (from this year's celebration). The sentiment is from PTI's Mixed Messages.


Thanks for stopping by!


Emily
