This card is for today's SCS Inspiration Challenge(IC232)! Awesome site, Stef! Here is the Disco Bag Graphic Love I used for my inspiration!  I tried to recreate the look because that is so fun to do with stamps!  Once you check out the bag you will see why my card is so...well...funky! No dp was used in the making of my circle tote postcard!

I started with some white cardstock and some true black cardstock!  I dusted off my CM circle cutting systems largest circles and cut out the white with the red cutter and the black with the green cutter.  I stamped the white circle with PTI Background Basics: Woodgrain, In Bloom, Polka Dot Basics II using various colors to recreate the look in the disco bag.  I die cut the flower and leaves for the Delightful Dahlia set and stamp the images.  I colored with copics.  I then die cut the butterfly and stamped with one of the butterfly images from the Butterfly Dreams set.  I used the Mat Stack #1 die cut to cut out the opening in the top of the card/tote to look like a handle.  Since the black background is larger it creates a bit of a shadow ridge along the base and sides of the card/tote.  I faux stitched the edge and added to sparkly black brads to look like bag in photo.  I did opt to show way more flower and dimension than the bag, plus I opted for the butterfly to add my sentiment from the Signature Greetings set!  I know it is different, but it was so FUN to do!
