Be Inspired Challenge #11 April 29, 2008

Man, another challenge brought to you by the most talented Beate.  This card I made for her “be inspired challenge” that you can see the details here.


When I saw the challenge, the colorful circles, brown stripes, and the wine glass stood out and I knew I was faced with a real challenge…lol

I used MFT Meet me at the Cafe to somewhat coordinate with the challenge image, MFT Behind the Scenes to create the brown stripes, and MFT Build a Bouquet for the circle image. 

How about that watermark?  I just love it.  Kim had them made for her DT members.  Thanks Kim:)

Make sure you head on over to Beate’s blog and check out all the samples created for the sketch…and have a great day!
