Fun is Good - BIC30

Beate's inspiration challenge for the week is this cool handbag. Excuse the poor photo of my card below. The colors are a bit off as it was a little dark when I took the photo, and I didn't adjust my white balance.

I was first drawn to the colors and random circular florals. I pulled out an old CTMH stamp set and random stamped the patterned paper using the photos from the bag as inspiration. The handles and top fringe made me think of kraft cardstock, so I added that as well. The card is also loosely based upon Beate's weekend sketch #64.

Cardstock: CTMH, PTI; Stamps: CTMH, Verve (sentiment); Ink: CTMH; Cuttlebug embossing folder; Marvy circle punches; Other: white gel pen, brads, twill ribbon.
