Be Inspired Challenge #4


Well, I thought I would give Beate's 'Be Inspired Challenge' another try. This week's inspiration image was a little more challenging for me than last week's was. When I first saw the image of this textured cutting board, I immediately thought of using the 'Baroque' background stamp and a bleaching technique, but WAIT, one problem, I don't own that background stamp! How could that be? I own almost every background stamp that 'Stampin' Up!' has ever made, why not that one? Well, back to the drawing board for me! Two other sets came to mind, but again, I didn't own them either!! I finally changed my direction and came up with this card. I hope it works!


Thanks again Beate for challenging me!

Okay, first thought again, "WOW". So pretty. I have a quick question. Did you use the purple scallop circle punch and the purple circle or pink circle for the plain circle? I think my pink circle is too small.
