Circles!

Hey y'all!  It's challenge time again over at Anita Be Stampin'!  This fortnight's challenge was to create a shaped card, with the option of adding buttons.  Unfortunately there's no buttons on mine because I forgot about that part of the challenge until after I had already taken the pictures.  Whoops!  At least it was optional.  The main challenge for me....was to NOT use one of Anita's fairy images!  I just love those fairies so much I've been using them for every challenge since they were released. All of my other fabulous ABS images were feeling neglected, so I decided to show some love to the Victorian ladies.


Now, unfortunately I don't have any fun dies big enough to make a fun shaped card, so I had to stick with circles.  However, continuing the circle theme helped me pick the embossing folder, sentiment and spinning wheel embellishment.  The background paper is actually a pale purple, shaded with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

Quick post tonight since it's getting kind of late.  Thanks for stopping by, and we'll be seeing you soon!

another cool card!! I love the circle shape...I keep thinking of doing a "shaped" card, just haven't gotten there yet!! What a beatiful image, right out of "Gone w/the wind"!! The metal embellies are the perfect vintage touch too!! Wow, girlfriend...I love how all of your cards are different from each other : )
