Just for You--A First

Saturday, September 3, 2011

Good Saturday Morning to you! I'm going to be brief today. Mojo Monday's sketch this week was either a square or a round card, and I opted for the round one. It's my first attempt at a card that isn't square or rectangular, and I loved working on it. It's always fun to learn to do something new. The colors are from Kathy's Lily Pad Palette challenge.

Another first for me was successful paper piercing on the inside of the card.  


I hope you have a chance to get inky this weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful card. I tried to make a shaped card this weekend - I ended up trashing it all. I love the circle card. I don't understand how the scallops get on there. Beautifully done!!
