Etsy Inspired Challenge #77

It's time for another Etsy Inspired Challenge! This is my last week as their guest designer and it has been so fun! Ashley does such a great job picking some great stores for inspiration. This week United Thread is the shop, and it took me no time to know exactly what my card would be. I basically got inspiration from two images:
 Aren't they cool images? Here's what I came up with...



I embossed the dandelion and friend (which is from the end of one of the sentiments in You're Dandy). I stitched around the circle, which I will admit is not the easiest thing to do, but I'm just addicted to sewing right now.

And can I just say how much I love this May Arts twill? It's so nice.


Stamps: You're Dandy (Practicing Creativity Designs)
Paper: Pure Luxury White (Gina K) Lemon Tart (Papertrey Ink)
Patterned Paper: Creamy Coconut Heat Wave (American Crafts)
Ribbon: Teal Twill (May Arts)
Thread: White (Coats & Clark)

And this week there is one awesome prize from Sakura America. Check out more details over at the site
