I finally did it!

That's right. I finally finally FINALLY made a circle card. After saying for months that I would, I finally did. It's not perfect, but I am happy with it. :)


I'll go ahead and show you the card first:




I had such a great time creating this card. I bought the Circle Cutter from SU a few weeks ago and finally decided to open the box and give it a go especially since Julee has really simple instructions on her blog, albeit using nestabilities, HERE.


I made it using this weeks' Mojo Monday sketch and the Color Throwdown color challenges.  Here is the sketch:





And here are the colors from Color Throwdown (brought to us by Kristin!)




Look at all of those fun colors!! The paper that I used seemed to have all of those colors in it {lucky!}, so I went with it. I also used the new Think Big Favorites #3 stamp from Papertrey.

Well, I hope you have a great Thursday! It's almost the weekend!! Woot!

Thanks for stopping by.

Circles suit you! This card is GREAT, Keva. I love the felt butterflies and the ribbon. The patterned papers were just right for the color challenge too.

This is soo cute. You did an awesome job for your first circle card. I've made a circle card myself a few days ago, and now I'm in the middle of making my second for the Mojo also. They are fun aren't they?
