Etsy Inspired Challenge #65

This is my first post as a guest designer for Etsy Inspired! I am just so excited! The inspirational shop this week is So Stinking Sweet, and sweet it is! They have the most adorable soaps! You just have to check it out! At first I was trying to pick out just one product to be inspired by, but I couldn't choose, so I looked at the front page of the shop and all of the color just made me so happy! Check it out:
Then I saw these flower shaped soaps called Passion Berries Flower Soap, and it all came together!

I made the flowers with my new Making Memories Slice! Yes, I got sucked in by those Thanksgiving sales and couldn't help it! I am totally loving the Slice!
I cut out different shapes out of different fabby American Crafts paper. I rolled the edges of all the flowers around a pencil and then layered the different shapes.
There are a row of polka dots down there at the bottom, they are just really hard to see in this photo! I think I need new white ink! The ribbon is also American Crafts. I am telling you, I think American Crafts can see inside my brain and just know what makes me happy. Since these flowers made me smile so much, I decided to use this happy PTI sentiment. :)

So come along and play with us. There are some AWESOME prizes this week:
-5 fabulous soaps from So Stinking Sweet as well as an adorable handmade ornament...seen HERE
AND for another winner...
