First attempt at circle cards...


A couple of quick circle cards - I've been playing with my dies again, ready for my demo on Saturday... I feel like I'll NEVER be ready!  It doesn't help that the kids have been poorly, followed by me being poorly... I'm sick of feeling limp, tired and headachey - I've not been able to do much blogging because it really makes my head hurt.  Oh well, enough complaining!

My first card is in autumn colours... I think the paper is Bo Bunny, ivory linen cardstock is from Papermill.  Flowers are Green Tara, with a button centre.  Added some ribbon and a ribbon slider that I found in my button stash, some card candy and a Craftwork Cards sentiment.

Challenges for this card:


I've used Papermill card for the base of this one, with papers from the Papermania 'big one' pad.  The butterfly was cut with a quickutz die with some pearls added.  Ric rac ribbon and button slider found in my stash, black card candy and a Craftwork Cards sentiment.  Both circle cards were cut with Go-Kreate dies.

Challenges for this card:
