A lot of work for one little card....

I started making this cute little card and although I knew I was specifically setting it up for two challenges, I had seen another challenge around that I could fit it into - which is why it's a CIRCLE!



So - here's the deal.

  • Color Challenge - The challenge over at the Color Throwdown Blog today was - Black, Real Red and Barely Banana. Not being an SU girl, I made due with the red, yellow and black that I have! And you can do that - they tell you so! LOL

  • Next up - use a circle on your card for the Creative Card Crew. Not only is the card circular in shape, but I do of course have my white base layer, which is a circle, so I figure I am good on the one too!
  • Last, but certainly not least - Heart Hugs Designs. This is an etsy inspired challenge and we were led to this cute little shop with hand made silver jewelry in it. I chose this piece as my inspiration. (see below) And this challenge is also for a DT spot that I am still in the running for! Go check Ashley out - she picks the best shops!!!

And that's all of this card! A lot of work for one little card to do, huh? Stop back soon...there's still more challenges out there, so I am sure I will have more cards and layouts too!
