Polka Dots and Paisley... Circle Craze

Circle Craze!

Today is a very busy Saturday... I have a lots of projects to finish but wanted to start the day by finishing the designs for my Spring Fever class on Monday. The girls attending this class purchased the promotional bundle and are bringing their stamp sets and wheels to class to create 4 projects using their new products. I am planning 3 very simple cards and this WOW project for the class. Today's color combination... well it's St. Patricks Day.. have to have a little green and of course I am a pink lovin' girls so naturally a little of that too!

Don't You Just Love It? I received a watermark RAK yesterday from Cindy Keery, she does such an amazing job with these watermarks.... Hugs and Many thanks Cindy, I absolutely love it!

I hope you enjoy... and don't forget to sign up for my blog candy... these Marvy Uchida Scalloped punches are hard to find... Best of Luck!

Circle Craze
I was in the mood for circles today so I thought I would play around with the Coluzzle, I used it for the Gable Green circle behind the main image.. I added some faux paper piercing using the white gel pen for accents. I created the smaller circle in the bottom corner using the 1 3/8" circle punch, it has the same faux paper piercing. I used the key tag punch for the sentiment and the 1/4" punch for the brad mats.

More Details
The card size is 6 1/2" x 3 1/4". I started by wheeling over the back layer (pretty in pink cardstock and ink) using the Petals jumbo wheel... (I like the look of Petals wheel when it is wheeled on the diagonal as apposed to wheeling it straight). I stamped the petals over top in whisper white craft ink. On the white panel I stamped 2 different images from Polka Dots and Petals in a random pattern. For the ribbon I decided to play with the frayed ribbon technique again (are you sick of this yet LOL, I'm not even close).. for this card I tied the two strands of ribbon around the card and then cut and frayed just the ends... I love this look.
