Etsy 50 ICS 30

The Etsy Inspired Challenge's EIC50 shop this week is Mrs. Kwitty's Cottage, which features sort of vintage-inspired cards, bookmarks and other items. I was inspired by a cute little bird tag.

I based my card in Inspirational Card Sketches #30, stretching and shrinking the three squares to fit my design. The paper the tag is had flowers similar to the paper I used for the bird, which is embossed in black detail EP. The pale orange layer has a sort of vintage fabric look, which fit in well with the overall feel of Mrs. Kwitty's, I thought.

The felt flower was a last-minute inspiration -- the color matches so well and the shape echoes the flowers in both the dps. I love it when that happens.

Bird is by Inkadinkadoo. Joy is from Another Stamp Company. Don't know who made the modern floral dp, and the vintage-y one is from a stack by Provo Craft.
