Tricky tricky...

The Copycatcard challenge for this week, as set by the lovely Hope, is to create a round card...tricky tricky! I'm a few days late in creating my sample, because I really couldn't decide what to do. My head kept saying Christmas bauble, and I couldn't silence it! So in the end I cut a piece of green cardstock into a circle as a starting point, and went from there.


I have to say, I love the way it turned out! A circular card is not something I would create all by myself usually, but I guess this is what it's all about :) Probably the trickiest thing about this card was taking the photo out in the afternoon breeze...it kept falling out of the tree! I figured hanging it on a branch was probably my best option LOL. I haven't even used patterned paper on this one (shock! horror!), just some cardstock cut into strips ( the white embossed with my favourite Cuttlebug folder) and a Bazzill Chip Topper sticker from a few years back...nothing too tricky about that!

If you are thinking about making your own circular card...hop to it! Leisa is away on holidays, so you have an extra week to come up with your design :)

Thank you for all your lovely comments over the last few weeks. If you have been too shy to leave me one...please, don't be! I'd love to hear from you.

I'm Liking that card very much. Nice work.
I never would have thought of even making a round one (I know-if I had looked at the challenge I would have)
Anyway yours is great.

I really, really like this card. I love the colour of that ribbon with the green - beautiful. :-)
