Be Inspired Challenge #5

This is the first time I have done Beate's Be Inspired Challenge, let alone any Inspiration Challenge. In the past I've usually steered clear of them. I think I am expanding my horizons. LOL.

I have used this layout before. When I saw Beate's challenge I immediately thought of THIS card. I wanted to use circle punches when I saw the funky ovals and circles in the example. I thought it would work well for the Challenge just by changing the colours (which I just happened to be similar to the Phoebe Basic Grey paper). I used a wide variety of punches ranging from 1/2" to 1 3/8" circles. The circles are sponged with Chocolate Chip ink. I think the card is pretty much self explanitory. If you do have any questions, please leave a comment. Hey, please leave a comment anyway. I love reading your comments and I ALWAYS check out your blog (if you have one).

This is wonderful. I like how all the little circles look like they're hanging from threads. Joan
