Etsy Inspired + Moxie Fab

An Etsy Inspired challenge card today... combined with the current Moxie Fab Grey is the New Black challenge.   Our inspiration etsy store this week is Modern Bird.   A site full of gorgeous handmade jewelry pieces.  When I first laid eyes on my inspiration piece a card idea immediately formed in my mind.    But, the question was could I made it work?   Well... I think I did!!    I absolutely LOVE how the card turned out because it turned out exactly as I imagined it would!!    Don't you love it when you card turns out exactly how you planned it?? 


I did have a bit of a problem photographing the card, though... but I do think this picture does the card justice.
Here is a close up shot of the flower:


Thanks for taking a peek...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Ink:  Ancient Page Grey; Stamps:  Vintage Vogue; BasicGrey Pearl
