Etsy Inspired Challenge #75

Sweet Ashley over at the Etsy Inspired challenge asked me if I would be interested in being their guest designer for the month of February, um YEA! So exciting. And what's even more exciting is this week she pick one amazing shop. Not only do I love this girl's products, but she is simply amazing herself.


And this week Simple Doodles is sponsoring this week challenge. I love her cupcake image, super cute. 

Here is the amazing photograph in Tina's shop that I based my card on:
Beautiful right?
And here's my card:
I used the ray stamp from You're dandy in all the different colors. To do the same, just line the next color us as you stamp. For this effect you won't use the ray guide, but it will be greatly beneficial to know where your center point is. Next I added the crystals and I really like how they look. 

Stamps: You're Dandy (Practicing Creativity)
Cardstock: Basic Black (Stampin' Up!); Hibiscus Burst, Stampers Select White (PTI)
Ink: Pumkin Pie (Stampin' Up); Lime (Technique Tuesday); Hibiscus Burst, Raspberry Fizz (PTI), Cranberry (ColorBox), Onyx Black (VersaFine)
Ribbon: True Black Satin (PTI)
Jewels: Black, Clear, Orange, Yellow (Hero Arts); Purple (Kaiser)

So come join the fun and go check out these other girl's work over at the Etsy Challenge blog!
