This delightful and fun bag is the inspiration piece for Beate’s Inspiration Challenge #30 this week.  (The handbag is a Belle Bag and can be found here.)


And here is the card I made for it.


I love this new Basic Gray “Urban Prairie” designer paper and matching brads.  I played with my SU! scalloped border and circle punches.  The scallops are clipped to give the circle a little more dimension.  The card is a 4-1/4″ square.
