OWH Mid-Week Throw-Down: Circles Galore

I kinda backed into this card. heh heh I was working on my Online Card Classes homework and not loving the results. I had an extra die-cut background on my desk, and it was full of circles, so I changed gears and used it for the OWH Mid-Week Throw-Down: Circles Galore challenge instead.

Here's the card, then I'll explain:

This card started with the chevron paper behind the whole front, but I thought it was too busy, so I die-cut the grey piece and glued those buggers into the circles at the bottom of the card to tone it down a bit. The center circle started out blue, but I ended up covering it with a yellow piece instead. I only mention that to explain the bit of blue peeking out from one side of the circle. (Do circles even have sides?! No, don't think so ...)

I stamped the sentiment in black, then thought it needed more, so I colored the little flower from the set with Distress markers and stamped that below the sentiment.  Since there were so many circles, I rounded the corners of the card with my 1/8" corner chomper. DONE!

I'm off to play some more challenges. Thanks for stopping by!

Products used: SU Basic Gray card stock, Martha Stewart gel adhesive (this stuff), and the following:


  1. I think yellow was the right choice for the circle and that little flower is very cute.

  2. That's such a fun card! So many circles but not too overwhelming, I'm sure because you changed the pattern in some of them.

  3. i LOVE the chevron paper behind the circles! ok, actually, i love EVERYTHING about this!!!


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