Circle Circus and Two Challenges in One!!

What a mouthful that was!!! hahaha. I've been wanting to have a go at a couple of challenges lately one being Dawn's Raspberry Suite Colour Challenge and the other being the 2 Sketches 4 You... so I can't tell you my joy in being able to combine the two of them into one card and the bonus of being able to use the lovely Circle Circus Stamp Set too. YAY!!!!

The colours for Dawn's challenge are DIVINE.... Chocolate, Vanilla (Cream), Bright Pink and Kraft.... YUM, YUM, YUM!!!!! and the Sketch was just lovely.

Here's what I came up with:-


I used Chocolate Chip as the base then added a layer of Rose Red and Kraft. On the Kraft I used one of the stamps from Circle Circus stamped in Chocolate Chip. Then I made a large circle using my Round Tab Punch in Choc Chip added a Round Scallop in Very Vanilla and the Flower Circle from Circle Circus in Rose Red. I attached some Very Vanilla Ribbon to the side with a Rhinestone Brad and popped it up on a few Dimensionals. then added some GORGEOUS Rose Red Ribbon (SU!) and the sentiment 'Friend' from Basic Phrases was stamped in Choc Chip on some Very Vanilla card and then onto some Rose Red before being attached with a bit of Linen Thread.

Hope you like it.

Thanks for stopping by.

Couldn't 'get' circle circus when I saw it in the catalogue, had no idea how you could use it, but you're the C.C master, very inspiring. I love the colour combo too. You bloggers will end up convincing me to buy this set, I just know it, LOL
