Sketchy Sunday {TG016}

I jumped all over this challenge because I am incapable of cutting two of anything exactly the same, and when you throw in the fact that it's a circle, and I've never made a circle card, well, that's why it's called a "challenge", right?

Here is Tiff's Sketchy Sunday sketch for this week:

Yep - a circle card. Sigh. After totally destroying several pieces of card stock and almost giving up completely, I went back in and ended up with this:

Yeah, I know, I didn't follow the actual sketch, but even so, it IS a circle. :) I actually like how it came out. :) The textured card stock base is a random piece I thought was blue but may, in fact, be a very light purple. I may never know. The white circle is a remnant of SU shimmer white. The sentiment is from a now-opened Hero Arts set of GIGUNDO sentiments (not the official name...), and this one just happened to fit this space. :)

The black thing is an old Cuttlebug die that I have now finally used after many, many years. The red bling is from a pack of red & orange bling I had to have since it was 49 cents.

We may be looking at my Dad's birthday card. :)

Okay, if *I* can do this, so can you! Now go on over to Tiff's post and link up your own circle card!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. SUPER COOL!! I like how this turned out even sans flower. Well done, Leslie. You circle card-making machine! ;)

  2. Love this bold and graphic card Leslie!!!! I also love how you altered the sketch :) It's all about making it work for YOU! Thanks for playing along again this week!!!!

  3. seriously, you've never made a circle card?? WOW!!! and yet this one is quite awesome, so clearly you are a natural! i hope this means it's the first of many!

    (i LOVE circle cards, but usually mine are one sided b/c i am too lazy to make the foldy kind! ) :) :) :)


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
