Beate’s weekend sketch challenge #48 May 16, 2008

Hip Hip Hooray for Friday!  I wanted to make a bright card for Beate’s wsc.  I thought it would be a cute one to leave in the console of my hubby’s car with a healthy orange for a snack.  


I just received my copy of Paper Crafts Magazine in the mail this past week.  I instantly fell in love with the idea on page 45 (orange you sweet card created by Kim Frantz…I hope I’m giving credit to the correct person).  I created my background oranges using the Circle Coluzzle Cutting System. 

Now, head on over to the blogs of these talented ladies to see more creations for Beate’s wsc:
