Etsy Inspired #48


This week's Etsy Inspired Challenge #48 features Vol25, a shop that sells prints and other graphics. I loved several of the designs -- especially the bookwormy stuff (after all, I am the stamping writer). She even has bookplates. I don't have any booky stamps, however, so I moved on to another inspiration. I had the perfect stamp and paper to interpret this T.S. Eliot quote, however. And you have to love that cute little RV on this poster, don't you? (We just have a boring square white pop-up, and this litte trailer has so much more personality.)


I have had this dp forever and finally found a good place to use it. (I'm not really used to letting a piece of dp be the main image, so this is a little stretch for me.) The quote is from All Night Media. I combined this challenge with the Ways to Use It challenge at SCS this week -- the theme was pleats, so I pleated the ribbons, both beside the sentiment and in the corner treatment. Pleating does add a new texture to the card. There's a a cute little car charm dangling from the corner ribbon (from a box of charms I bought at a stamping consignment sale last spring, I think it was Making Memories but I threw away the label).
