A Little Round Challenge

123008-colors

I was doing a lot of blog-visiting today and noticed some cute things using Kristina Werner's Color Challenge #36.  I haven't played one of these for ages, so I thought I'd give it a try.  Isn't this a cute pincushion?  I needed a thank-you for a late Christmas gift I got, and I thought a round card would be fun:

DSCF2820

The base of the card is two scallops cut from my largest Nestability; the circular card is Old Olive and there is just the tiniest little fold at the top; you can barely see it!  I added some Haiku paper and a flower from Always.  I need to use this set more, it has lots of possibilities and I "always" forget I have it!  Some rub-ons, a die-cut Pretty in Pink button and some Rose Red grosgrain finish it off.

  • Stamps:  Always
  • Paper:  WW, Rose Red, Old Olive, Pretty in Pink, Haiku
  • Ink:  Rose Red
  • Acc:  Nesties, Circle Punches; Button Die Cut; Rub-ons (retired SU); Grosgrain Ribbon, dimensional, thread
