Etsy Inspired # 48 with a Giveaway!

It's time for another Etsy Inspired Challenge. This week's shop is Vol. 25 by Jessica Rose. Jessica's name may sound familiar because she designs stamps for several companies including Unity Stamp Co. Her images are fun and whimsical and I must say that I do think I own most or all of the stamps she has designed for Unity because I love them.
I was very excited to see that she was this week's Etsy Shop for the challenge and whoever wins the random drawing will get an 8x10 print of their choice from her shop. How cool is that? All you have to do is go to her store and choose an item for your inspiration and create. Post a link to your creation on Ashley's blog by Friday Aug 14 at noon (Pacific Time) to enter the drawing. If you upload to the Splitcoast Gallery or Papercrafts Planet use keyword EIC48.

ALSO-No one won the Paper Makeup gift certificate last week so you still have a chance to win that too! All you have to do is refer a friend that is new to the challenge. When your friend posts their creation link, just have them tell Ashley that you referred them. YOU will then be entered in a drawing to win the $25 gift certificate! Each friend you refer gets you one entry into the drawing! Now, go get your friends EtsyInspired!

Below is the print that I chose from Jessica's store as my inspiration.
Here is the card I created based on the print. All stamps are from Unity Stamp Co. and all card stock and yellow designer paper is from Papertrey Ink. The black and white designer paper is from Making Memories. The layout is from the Weekly Sketch Challenge on SCS # 240.
