Going round in Circles.

Hello again. Do you remember the Circle background card from the last time?

Well I had all these little bashful blue circles left over (I made the card twice) and my frugal self didn't want to throw them out!
So what better way to use them than to join in the Paper Players Challenge this week and make another spotty card!! hehe!

So come and see what I did with all those circles and the sketch challenge:

Instead of a strip of patterned paper I used all those circles to create a strip of pattern! Pretty nifty.

I punched a hole through the black cardstock and added a large white circle with the same size circle punched out to frame the little whale.
Do you think the little anchor and fish will count for the smaller shape? They come from the whale sizzlit as well (extra bonus!!)
And all those hundreds (small exaggeration I know but it felt like it!) of little circles I glued on, they look great when I added a little dazzling diamonds to some. We all need a little sparkle don't you think?

I think the card turned out rather cute.
Products Used:
Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, Bashful Blue, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White
Whale Sizzlit
1 3/4" big circle
Scrap designer paper from Saleabration pack.
White baker's twine.

And while I was on a role with all those Circles! LOL!
Come and see another card I made. This time I went for a baby card.
 I glued the circles onto a piece of Print Poetry Designer Paper and ran it through the bigshot with the Lattice Embossing Folder.

I seriously had trouble finding a "baby" themed stamp would you believe and resorted to using a stamp from the Hostess Set "Four Seasons". I thought a little birdie in a nest could work with my baby theme.
 I even stamped on the designer paper with the Itty Bitty Banner words "Sweet Baby". "Sweeeet"!
or should that be "Tweeeet"! haha.

Products used:
Cardstock: bashful blue, Night of Navy, Very Vanilla
Ink: So Saffron, Marina Mist, Pacific Point (sweet baby)
Baja Breeze ribbon.
Print Poetry Designer Paper

Come back again next week to check out some Mothers Day Cards. It is just around the corner!
See you then. Vx
