Etsy Inspired Challenge with The Stamping Boutique's Fairy Cynthia

The Stamping Boutique is sponsoring this week's challenge over at The Etsy Inspired Challenge Blog and I love these type of challenges!  We were asked to go over to www.etsy.com/shop/glowgirl16 
and choose an item that inspires us and make a card or project based on that.  My card today was so much fun to make because I love the colour combo!  As soon as I saw the photo in the Etsy shop I knew it was the one.  Not only do I love the teal blue/brown combo I had the perfect paper that reminded me of the photo I chose:

And here's my card:
The background paper totally reminds me of the fabric used on the coupon organizer.  Plus I just love this image by The Stamping Boutique "I love you this much Cynthia".  Now Cynthia normally has the cutest little ballet slippers however I had a little Nestabilities crafting accident which required me to reshape/recut my image so Tracey I'm sorry I had to trim off her little feet, LOL!!  Cynthia was coloured with Prismacolour pencils and I added some Martha Stewart Glitter to her wings.  All paper is by Bo Bunny.

If you weren't aware of it The Stamping Boutique will be sending out a new newsletter called The Stamping Boutique Journal so don't forget to sign up for it.  There will be a FREE DIGI IMAGE sent with every issue & how cool is that?  Be sure to check it out here and sign up.  Signup is on the top right corner of the page.

Crystal I love this card, and you are right your DP is almost a dead ringer for the fabric in the organizer.
