An Old Inspiration

I was cleaning out my card picture folders on my computer the last couple days....eye ye ye...what a mess!!  Well...that led to a few pics I had downloaded from an inspiration challenge at Splitcoaststampers  2 YEARS AGO...using old record covers:)!!  The challenge was based on a site called Project Thirty-Three which showcases vintage record album covers.  You might be interested in taking a peak if you're needing some inspiration...very cool colors and shape!!  Here's the inspiration album cover and my card...2 years after the challenge:):)...

Just in case you're curious...this is how I did it...  I punched 1" circles from cardstock and very thin chipboard and layered 25 circles....yes, it's a lot of circles...but NOT hard!!  This is a 4 1/4" square card, so I used a 3"square spellbinders square die and cut out from a 4 1/4" square piece of copy paper
Then I layered the middle 9 circles into the 3" square and adhered them on to black card.
Then I used a ruler to line up the side circles
and then trim all the edges.  Here's a closer look at the added dimension of the circles
Added Paper Smooches sentiment in the bottom corner whole circle
Yeah!!!  Now I can delete another photo out of my folder!!!!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
