Etsy challenge

I love etsy, don't you. Sometimes I just browse through the stores looking for inspiration. One of my favorite stores to ogle is joom. Since I volunteered to lead the weekly challenges this week on the SSUS group, I figured a joom inspiration challenge was just right!

I asked my partner ahead of time if she wouldn't mind if I used a non-Stampin' Up! set. Luckily for me, Kim is awesome and agreed. I've wanted to use these PTI sets forever, and they are just perfect for joom's look.

As you can tell, I used the pillow on the right as my inspiration. The sentiment is embossed, but the bird and branch aren't because my brown embossing powder has gone bad.

I think I will be making more joom look-a-likes in the future.

The layout is from the clean & simple blog's Fall To Layout #31.

Ink: Palette Burnt Umber, Versamark
