a circle card for Caardvarks


I made this card for the "Circle of Friends" challenge over at Caardvarks. The challenge is to make a round card.

I stamped the Friend Definition cling stamp from Hero Arts in Walnut Stain first then distressed the piece with Peeled Paint and Tea Dye. I then clear-embossed Three Ferns over the distressed piece. Before I cut the circle using my Nesties, I again distressed the embossed piece with Spiced Marmalade and Fired Brick.

The sentiment panel is covered with Frosted Lace Stickles to give it a subtle bling (Is it legal to use these two words in one sentence?)...

That's it for me today! Hope you all have a wonderful Thursday!

Thanks for stopping by!
