Etsy Inspired Challenge # 136

This week's Etsy Inspired Challenge is a super fun one.  Wait until you see this week's Etsy Shop, Bearly Art.  There are quite a few items in that shop I would love to see in my apartment, and the prices are great too! As always be sure to visit the Etsy Inspired Challenge Blog for all the details (deadlines, rules and other important stuff).  Here are the basics:
Etsy Inspiration Shop: Bearly Art
Prize: Winner's Choice of In-Stock Clocks
Sponsor Shop: Sassy Cheryl's 
Prize: $5 Gift Certificate
Here is the item I chose for my inspiration piece.  I just love this crab and it makes me think of the beach and summer time.  

I must admit my card did not come out like I had it pictured in my mind.  I was trying to create a scene of a sailboat on the ocean.  I see a lot of things I would do differently now, but it's late and I have to work tomorrow, so this is what I have.  Maybe I will re-do it in the future.  But I do love that cute little brad I bought when shopping with my friends Jimmi and Kimme.  :)
Be sure to visit the rest of the Etsy Inspired Design Team including our April Guest Designer Kimme (yes, the same Kimme who helped me find the crabby brad!)
Thanks for stopping by- have a fantastic day!

Love your card! The colors rock and that little crab is too cute. That's one of my fav clocks too!

PS I am posting today, it was last week I didn't. Angi isn't today tho and it looks like Jackie is MIA.

Have a great Easter!
