HOORAY! It's Etsy Inspired's 100th challenge! We are so happy you have joined us! There are a ton of fabulous prize giveaways, that you will not want to miss out on!

This week Cathy Walters is our shop for you inspiration.  She has some fabulous pendants to spark your creativity this week.  I was inspired by the monogram pendant below.  I used stamps from Unity's July 2010 KOTM for my card!  This is a OLC (one layer card).  I added some bling to the damask stamped pattern.
Here is a list of our fabulous sponsors this week:

Softpencil Designs
Limelight Papercrafts
Lawn Fawn
Unity Stamp Co.
May Art


Make sure you leave a comment on each of the DT's blogs for a chance to win fabulous prizes on each blog! I will be giving away the fabulous store exclusive "She" Unity set to one lucky winner!  There will also be two giveaways on the EIC blog.  The fabulous grand prize of 100 different paper crafting items and a $10 gift certificate to Soft Pencil!

Make sure you link your project to the EIC blog HERE.  Use keyword EIC100 when uploading to online galleries!

This is going to be so much fun!  Good luck!

Hi Emily~

This is my first time to your blog! I would love to win any of your prizes, Lord willing. I don't own any Unity stamps.

Your card is really exceptional! I love the neatness of it. The clear stamped image and the tiny little brads or pearls used on it.

Very beautiful. Very elegant.

Thanks for having this big challenge!

He IS Able,
Traci S.
