Daring Cardmakers Challenge ~ "Circles"

As I enjoyed participating in the Friday Sketchers Challenge a couple of weeks ago I decided to try my hand at another challenge ~ this time it's the latest one on the Daring Cardmakers Blog & the theme is circles.

Initially I struggled a bit to come up with an idea but after a bit of a "brainwave" & fiddling with a few embellishments, I'm really thrilled with the finished result :D

I've made my card using a layered red panel embossed with one of my Cuttlebug embossing folders (Hearts), then added a narrow strip of white card embossed with the Swiss Dots folder.

The central white panel has the cute circular Forever Friends picture which I cut out from a piece of gift wrapping paper; the "Thanks" Cuttlebug die cut & is finished with two mulberry paper flowers & four self adhesive rhinestones. My Carl corner rounder punch also came in very handy this week!!

It looks like I'm getting hooked on challenges.......... pity I don't have any extra time to squeeze in a few more :( Such is life with a 13 yr old & 6.5 yr old to chase around after, but I'm aiming to try & do at least one challenge a week so fingers crossed I will manage it!

Thanks so much to everyone who has visited my blog & left a comment :D I look forward to you visiting again & will try & pop over to your blogs soon too.

Until next time..........



  1. Your card is lovely Tracey - I love the red and white colour combo you've chosen
