Etsy Inspired Challenge

I love Unity stamp company! Their hip hop on Thursdays is so fun! And yes you can win free stamps which is awesome of course but it really brings crafters together! I have met some of the nicest people through hip hop! Both online and even one in person! And I would like to meet more of them IRL! One of these nice people is Ashley! Check out her blog Heart Hugs! Each week she does an Etsy Inspired Challenge. She chooses an Etsy store and you are to choose something from that store to inspire your creation! And while I try to avoid Etsy (simply for financial reasons) not because it's not FABULOUS because it IS! I really like Etsy challenges! I always find something that inspires me! Last weeks shop (yes I am a week behind!) was PURPLE Toes Jewelry!!! I was inspired just by the name! So I searched for somehting that would inspire me and it wasn't hard! But I finally setted on a necklace with pearls and a black heart pendent with a PINK flower on it! (I went back tonight to link it and couldn't find it at first it has sold!)Here is the necklace. Isn't it purty???

So this was my inspiration. I think my card totally reflects this piece of jewelry! It has pearls, hearts and the colors. No flowers though! I also used Unity's Sketch Challenge #6 but only the sentiment is Unity so I don't know that I will link it in the forum. I started by chosing colors, BLACK, PINK PASSION and WHITE! I used Pink Passion for my base. Then ran a black piece through my Sizzix Big Kick embossing it with the Birds and Swirls CB folder. I went to my Always set by SU it is my most favoritest set from SU and that's saying something! I stamped the spring on a piece of pink passion randomly and then tied some black organza ribbon around it. I stamped the heart image in pink passion and cut it out. I added some pearls to it and added a little sentiment from unity underneath! What do you think?
I am extremely pleased with how it turned out! Hopefully I will have time to do this weeks as well and on time even!!!

Who is the Krafty Mama?

Hi I'm the Krafty one! :) I'm the Queen to 2 little knights and a sweet princess. I married my knight in shining armor (kevlar) over 8 years ago and I am a REAL mom, wife and substitute teacher trying to be the best I can be! I love "krafting" but tend to buy more supplies than I actually use. I love make up, nail polish, hair products and fashion but have been known to leave the house in sweats a messy bun and no make up! I love to cook and bake but am guilty of feeding my kids McDonalds in a pinch. I love direct sales and have joined too many to mention! I would love to get to know you!
