Etsy Inspired Challenge!

It's the 100th Etsy Inspired Challenge! I've only done one of these before, but it's fun and I couldn't miss the 100th! The Etsy shop featured this week is Cathy Walters. She has fantastic pendants! The one below was the first one I saw when going to her shop. I loved it immediately.
This is my card inspired by the pendant. It's so simple, and you know I like to muck it up a lot. There are no ribbons, no flowers, no buttons! I love it though! I used October Afternoon paper. I used Tim Holtz Aged Paper Distress Ink on the edges of the white, the yellow print and to stamp the basket. There is no coloring either. I thought that would distract from the whole idea of the card. I used Unity stamps. The "journey" stamp is from the February, 2009 KOM, Endings & Beginnings. The balloon is from the December, 2009 KOM, Delightful Moments.
Thanks for looking! Have an awesome day!
