Amber Ink - Etsy Inspired

Good morning to all of you.  Did you know that Amber Ink is the sponsor over at the Etsy Inspired Challenge this week?  This week we're heading over to Fresh Metal Jewelry for our inspiration.  Stop by and check them out because they have some gorgeous designs.

This  beautiful piece was the inspiration for my card.

And here's my card.  OK, I know sometimes my mind works in strange ways.  Who else would look at that lovely necklace and be inspired to make a card with a turtle lol!  Anyway, I used  Curious Turtle  and colored her using my copics and colored pencils.  I added some Stardust stickles to the hearts.  I used some ribbon and added some flowers.  I hope you can play along in their challenge this week.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
