EIC # 121- La Pomme

Good Morning (or afternoon or evening depending on when you stumble upon my blog)!!  Today I have a card for the Etsy Inspired Challenge - we are up to # 121 already!!  Can you believe it?  This week's featured Etsy Shop is LaPomme.  Even if you don't want to play the challenge, you HAVE to check this shop out!  It is full of vintage items for all tastes. The store is also offering a prize package of vintage music sheets, a vintage tin and plush fruits to one lucky winner (boy I wish I could win!!).  I had a hard time deciding on which image to use for my inspiration, but I finally decided on this:

I think what inspired me is pretty obvious.  When I saw this photo I thought of this wonderful stamp set I have from Mark's Finest Papers called Take the Time/Father's Day.  I love the pocket watch image- it is truly timeless, just like the inspiration item.  I cut the card stock (also from Mark's Finest Papers) to look like pieces of ribbon.  I completed the look with Ranger Crackle Accents to give it that vintage look. 

This week's sponsor is The Stamp Fairy.  The winner of this week's challenge will receive 3 Digi Images of their choice from the store.  There's some super cute stuff in this store.  Be sure to check it out so you know what images you want to win (or buy if you don't).  :)
If you don't know how to play the Etsy Inspired Challenge, it is EASY as PIE!  Just choose an item in this week's sponsor shop, La Pomme and create an item based on that image.  You can be inspired by colors, lines, whatever.  It is open to interpretation and creativity.  Have FUN!!  Just link your  creations to this week's post on the EIC blog for your chance to win.  For more details, please visit the EIC Blog HERE

I love what you did with that pocket watch image...the color and crackle accents made me think it was more of a metal charm at first. Great job!
