Beate's Be Inspired Challenge

Good Tuesday Evening!
Today Beate posted her Be Inspired Challenge. I don't normally do these types of challenges. I just can't figure out what I want to do half the time and give up. BUT....I attempted a card today...now don't laugh...well okay....go ahead....especially after you see THIS inspiration piece. Are you asking yourself what happened to my card? hahaha! Me too!
I don't use those dark colours too often and wanted to keep it a fun card. That's where this paper from American Crafts came in. I suppose I got inspiration from the funky pattern on Beate's piece. Does that count?
Stamps: Pun Fun, Make It Count
Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie, Cool Caribbean, Certainly Celery, Real Red, WC Paper
Inks: Black stazon, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Celery, Brocade Blue
Accessories: Coluzzle, Designer Label Punch, 1 3/8", 1 1/4", 1", 7/8", 3/4" Circle Punches, White Brads, Dimensionals, Aqua Painter

Hi Dawn! I love the bright, happy colors and the shapes of your card. Hey, the challenge is called "inspiration" challenge so what ever way it inspires you should be fine and dandy! LOL!
