Beate's BIC 30

Happy Tuesday! :) I hope you are all having a great day! :) Today it's time for another fun inspiration challenge from Beate! Take a look at todays inspiration piece....

One thing popped into my instantly when I saw this! I LOVE the circles! While the colors are fabulous also, I chose a different color scheme. I am in full Christmas mode now! I'm not so sure I will end up with a 'set' of Christmas cards to send out or if I will just send a bunch of different ones. I am having such a hard time deciding! One thing is a definite...this will NOT be this years mass produced card! Someone will get it...but only ONE person! LOL

Here's my card for this week...

I went only with the circles. The reason this is actually a bit of a bear...the stickles and liquid pearls are a bit temperamental! This is actually the third card...the first two were both ruined when either my liquid pearls or stickles spit out to much goo...or because I accidentally shut the card before it was dry! ...and to think!...it looks so EPLS! (easy peasy lemon squeezy)

Here's one of the inside...I took the circles all the way down on the bottom under the sentiment...

...and for some reason it seems like this picture loaded REALLY big! Sorry...I am actually typing this Monday night and am just to pooped to change it!

So dash on over to the rest of Beate's team and see what they came up with...

And by the time you read this...I will be off to a hair appointment...a MUCH needed hair appointment! Hope you all have a fabulous day!

I will post you soon! :)

Jennifer I love circles too. This card is wonderful and I love the window effect. Why is that some of the most simple looking cards are the hardest to create?..lol. TFS.

Girl....your card rocks! I LOVE all the dots. I can't believe you were patient enough to do that. I don't know if I would have.
