I just finished a shaped card for the Be Inspired challenge at TAWS blog.  I made a beach ball, at least I tried to make on LOL!!  I guess I am going to try it again but for now I am rather happy with how this one turned out.

Here is a pic of my card:

And here is the interior:

Have you check the new issue of Paper Crafts Magazine??  It has a complete section of summer shaped cards.  Super fun!!  I decided I am going to make a serie on shaped cards, hence my practice today.  If I have to endure the heat that comes with summer, then I am going to enjoy making beach and pool related projects.  My next card?? hmmm, How about a sand castle ;)  

Thanks for the visit and your sweet comments ;)
