Beads and Blessings

I love it when I can play in Saturday's SCS Inspiration Challenge. It is so much fun to see what everyone comes up with from looking at something else. Today (#194) we had a great whimsical site for a NYC boutique called Pylones.

I chose the beaded ring HERE for my inspiration. My orange button is reminiscent of the center of the ring, and the tag and spiral paper edge remind me of all the beaded holes.

My images are from Happy Birthday by Our Daily Bread designs. I only needed a part of the sentiment to fit in my tag, so I colored the "Blessings" with a Basic Black Stampin' Up! marker and used that portion. The flowers and watering can are colored with Copic markers.

There are Crystal Stickles on the butterfly and the nozzle of the watering can.

For more inspiration using this set, check out these beautiful designs:
