Etsy Inspired Challenge #141

Hello! Welcome to Etsy Inspired Challenge!  It is sad that this shall be the LAST Etsy Inspired Challenge. As it was getting tough to get sponsors and shops week after week, Ashely and De decided to end the challenge. They both have been awesome in running this challenge blog. I wish you both and all DT the best and I'm sure I will "see you around" in blog land. I'd like to thank Ashley and De for such an amazing opportunity to be part of this team.

So here goes the last Etsy Inspired challenge!
Our Shop is Homes and Weddings.  
The Winner Prize is Copper Business Card Holder 
Sponsor: Winner prize - "Mystery Grab Bag from our past Sponsors"
Here is the item from Homes and Weddings that inspired me.
I was inspired by the die cut and wire and I turn that into Father's Day card. My DH Dr. John loves music, reading, biking and traveling, so I that's how I came up with the ideas of the background.The sentiment are all from SRM Stickers . All stamps are from Hero Arts.
You're the BEST
Please check out the Etsy Inspired DT's work for more inspiration.

Hi Virginia! What a DARLING card! You certainly covered all of Dr. John's interests! Great manly tones, too. I am SO SAD that the Etsy inspired challenges are coming to an end!! :( Do you know that is what got me HOOKED on ETSY!? Well it is!!! I LOVE all that they have on that site and I've added some of the items to our newly renovated home........I'll miss the challenges and the spotlight of the shops, too. You've done a FABULOUS job in designing for them, Virginia. Love, Karen xo

Such a fun card - I love the collage effect of all the stamps you used!
Are the stitching corners accents also done with a stamp? It looks so great!
