Etsy Inspired Challenge

A card today for the current Etsy Inspired Challenge and since I made it a thank you card, I will be putting into the current Hero Arts challenge, as well.  The inspiration shop this week is Tzaddi Shop.  Lots of really cool jewelry designs.  I got my inspiration from this particular piece:

When I first saw it I was immediately reminded of the Hero Arts Fabulous Flourish stamp.  I didn't go with the reddish color of the inspiration piece, but with a burgundy color.  I stamped the flourish using SU! Bravo Burgundy and then added some Scattered Straw distress ink.   The distress ink caused some slight smearing of the burgundy ink which looks really cool IRL.   I added some gold color to the flourish using a Spica glitter pen, but you can't see it.   The thank you sentiment is from the Hero Arts set Thank You Flourishes.

Thanks for taking a peek... we have nothing but rain here in the NW, hope it is drier where you are!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI True Black & Vintage Cream; SU! Bravo Burgundy; Ink:  SU! Bravo Burgundy; Ranger Scattered Straw Distress ink; PTI True Black; Stamps:  Hero Arts Fabulous Flourish; Thank You Flourishes; KaiserCraft pearls; Spica gold glitter pen
