Etsy Inspired #47

This week's Etsy Inspired Design challenge (#47) is for JulieAnn's Jewels. Julie makes some beautiful beadwork jewelry.

For my piece, I was inspired by both the colors and the design of her "rock crystal quartz with aventurine and sterling silver necklace and earring set". I silver-embossed the butterfly (from Stamps On Fire) on green paper, trying to match her green beads. The flourish (in place of the white beads) is a rub-on. Sentiment is from Club Stamp. It's clean and simple, for sure.
If you've been wanting to try the Etsy Inspired Challenge, Ashley is encouraging new players by offering special prizes this week -- you could win a gift certificate from Julie or to a papercraft supply shop. Just tell her I sent you when you post a link to your creation on the Etsy-Inspired blog.
