Had some fun today as I played along in Beate’s Inspiration Challenge.  Here is the inspiration piece this week.

And here is the card that I made for it.  I thought the Crystal Clear Card Stock would work well to give the feel of glass as there is so much of it in the inspiration piece.


All of the stamping is done on the front of the clear card stock.  The white insert is completely blank.  It is attached with adhesive to the clear card stock only under the designer paper panel at the top of the card.

There are so many possibilities and different ways to go with this inspiration piece.  I’m excited to see how the other design team members interpreted it.  You can check out their creations with me on their blogs here.
