Beate's Challenge/Second Attempt





Here's my second try at Beate's weekend Challenge. Okay....so I broke all the rules, right? I have wanted to try a circle card for a while, and I thought...why not try the gate-fold type? I am Coluzzle challenged, so I thought I needed the practice (still do). All SU products are used here except the Karen Foster Scrapper's Floss. I used new card-stock, ink, and the Pick a Petal stamp set. It's hard to tell in the picture, but I dazzled the polka dots with Dazzling Diamonds. I wanted to add more embellishments, but there isn't much room, and I think the shape makes it a bit more difficult as well. The sentiment is from Fancy Flexible Phrases (I am so hoping this set makes the new catty...I've said that before, haven't I? He, he, he.) The diameter of this card is 4 3/8 inch. Click image to zoom if you choose.

Thanks for stopping by!

This is great! You're so brave to turn the sketch into a circle. :-) And your flower is adorable - can totally see the glitter when I click on the photo, what a super cute touch! (you must have been very sparkley when you finished this card!) :-)
