Bee Mine!

This card is for this week's Etsy Inspired challenge #32, and the shop is so awesome this week! Angel Face Designs by Heather is featured this week, and she has some fabulous jewelry! This is my inspiration piece for this week. Such nice ideas for gifts! I really have found that I love inspiration challenges more and more because it just gives a nice springboard into the creation of a card. And, I especially like the Etsy Inspired challenges because you usually have many different items to choose from for the inspiration. I knew immediately when I saw this pendant that I had to use this set from Stampin' Up. It is a cute one, and of course I had to borrow it, but it may be on my purchase list for next month's stamp club! I didn't have a sentiment stamp that said Bee Mine, so I had to use a rub on alphabet to create the words. Thanks for stopping by today, and it is definitely worth a try to see the Etsy challenges! Come play!
