Round card

I knew I should have turned the TV off, once I saw the Death on the Nile film was on, I just had to watch to the end.

Anyway, while I sat in front of the TV, I dabbled with the Mojo Monday challenge #206 with a sketch and choice of square or round.

As I've not done one before I thought I would have a go at a round card.
The next decision was what colours to use. A week ago Clean and Simple had these colours as inspiration, and I loved them but didn't get chance to use them for their challenge, so I thought I'd use them for this project. One other snag was I don't have any Kiwi Kiss or Summer Sun so I substituted them for Certainly Celery and Yo Yo Yellow.
So I started by putting a cream card in the BS with a scallop circle die, and layering it with a semi circle of blue and brown card that had been embossed and wrapped with a blue ribbon. I then cut 2 labels, a green one stamped with script in brown, and a yellow one stamped with a blossom stamp, which were then overlapped on the front. A smaller label was stamped with a sentiment and 2 blossoms (positioned with the Stamp-a-ma-jig)and stuck with 3D pads for dimension. The finishing touches were 3 gems and brown spots in the centers of the flowers.

Here's the result and I was quite pleased how it turned out, what do you think?

Recipe : Card = SU Soft Suede, Yo Yo Yellow, Certainly Celery, Very Vanilla, Bermuda Bay, and cream from my stash
Stamps = French Foliage, Garden Silhouettes, and Verve sentiment
Inks = Soft Suede, Certainly Celery, and Bermuda Blue
Tools = Big Shot, SB Nestabilities labels and Scallop Circle, and Budding Vine embossing folder
Extras = Ribbon, 3D pads, and gems

That's it for me today, thank you for dropping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend.


  1. Have a great weekend yourself and you did a good job with this one:) Sandra H

  2. It's really pretty Bev and the swapped-in colours work beautifully. Hope you're feeling better after your RA treatment - sounds like a ghastly old thing. Vx
