Caardvarks Circle Card Challenge




This week the challenge over at Caardvarks is to make a circle card. Oh, how challenged I was. I had this cute idea to use the Snowglobe tutorial on SCS this week from my buddy Libby. Then I thought maybe that wouldn't qualify as a circle so decided to go along the lines of the snowglobe looking theme.

Although this took me a little while to complete, I love how it turned out. The acetate and dazzling diamonds make the perfect snow to showcase the little snowman from the Winter set from Clear & Simple Stamps being released 11/15/09. I used the color challenge for SCS this week which was neutrals with a POP.

Would love for you to join Caardvarks, Clear & Simple Stamps and myself in making a circle card. Link it to Caardvarks when it's complete so we can check out your creativity and for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to the Clear & Simple Stamps store.
