Etsy Inspired Challenge # 110

Welcome to Etsy Inspired Challenge. Our fabulous DT Kerry's Etsy store is going to be the SHOP and the SPONSOR... two prizes to give away! How awesome is that?!
Shop: Capturing Creativity (Kerry's shop see here)
 ShopWinner Prize #1 - My Favorite Things Creativity Kit,
Sponsor Winner prize - Tinkering Ink stamp set and Chunky Accordion Album

Kerri's shop has lovely items from buttons, creating kits and even her handmade cards! This is the item that inspired me! Isn't this Halloween card just delightful?
I decided to change it to Christmas card and I also challenge myself to make it with the non-traditional colors! I used A LOT of little gems and buttons for this one.
Wishing you.. ( An Etsy inspired card)
Sometimes a little more embellishements really jazz up the entire look! In this case, the embellishments ARE the focus. Hope you like this inspired card. Please check out all the amazing DT work. I'm so blown away by their creativity time and time again!
