Goin' Round in Circles

A link from Allison's blog (Stampin' When I Can) sent me to a site I've never visited, Card Positioning Systems, where they post layout challenges. The challenge for this week was to use circles! I thought the layout was different and fun so I decided to play along! Some folks, who participated in the challenge, did use just circles as the entire card but since the patterened paper I wanted to use was a light weight I decided to go with a square background of a heavier cardstock.

The card is 5" x 5" and the background color is one of the new SU! In Colors, River Rock. The rest of the paper is from my giant book of ProvoCraft paper. The corners are again covered using my favorite corner covering technique (using a scalloped heart punch) and adhered with snazzy new crystal brads from SU!. The middle flower and three dots have been sponged with River Rock ink and coated with one coast of glassy glaze embossing powder, giving it more of a rough bumpy surface vs. a high gloss smooth finish.

Try out a circle card today and post a link back to your photo...I'd love to see what you create!

Happy Friday!

Great job on this card! I am on the Provo Craft design team, and I love to see how others use the product! Great job, and thanks for participating at CPS this week! We post a new sketch every Sunday- hope to see you continue to play!
