I had so much with the first challenge I decided to jump on the second one. The challenge is to make a circular thank you card. Easy Peasy!
I used my new favorite cart - wait for it - okay, you know what it is - Elegant Edges! I used one of the best paper packs that I have ever owned - DCWV's Lemon Flower Stack. I am in LOVE with these papers. I would buy another stack if I could find one - I picked it up at Joann's several months ago and no one has had any since!
A bit more about the card - It is about 5 and 1/2 inches wide and opens at the side. I used the shadow feature to weld two images together to form the base of the card. I also used the base feature along with the frame feature. The flower inside the frame is from Damask Decor (surprise! - not, lol). I welded the flower to the frame and then used a lot of dimension around the card to make things pop. I also used one of the borders from Elegant edges. If I didn't own a gazillion punches I might use this cart exclusively for borders from now on - they are THAT nice. The stamp is from Verve's Thoughtful Accents set, and the tag is from Spellbinders - Labels Eighteen. The leaves are Spellbinders foliage, another set I can't use enough. I used the die as a stencil and inked the foliage and the sides of the tag with Stampin' Up Pear Pizzaz ink. The butterfly is from Martha Stewart Elegant Cake Art and I used, appropriately enough, Martha Stewart glitter to make it shine. I love this card. Sigh.
