Beate's Be Inspired Challenge #26

Beate runs lots of inspiration challenges on her blog, and I have been meaning to give one a go for ages now. With a little time to muck around, I decided today would be the day.

The challenge is to use the picture below...colours, pattern, whatever, to inspire your card:

My card took a little longer to come together than I would have liked. I got a bit overwhelmed at one point, and nearly gave it up...but came through it in the end....just ;-).

I've used Night of Navy textured cardstock for the background. Then Kraft, Whisper White, Real red, Night of Navy and Ballet Blue cardstock for the layers and embellishments. I think Pacific Point blue would have been a better bet, but we don't have it here in Oz yet. I'm looking forward to that one :-).

The circles are punched out using various Stampin' Up! punches. The stripes on the smallest Night of Navy circles are stamped on using Whisper White craft ink and the striped stamp from the 'Background Sampler' stamp set, and then embossed white. The white dashed line and 'Thank You' sentiment are from Stampin'Up!'s 'A Perfect Day' Rub-Ons set (available in our current Australian Spring Mini Catalogue).

Thanks for looking,
