I'm back with another Circle Circus card

Oops, sorry I’ve been neglecting my blog. I’ve had a few email issues, camera battery issues and daylight issues! I’ve also been busy helping some lovely ladies join my Stampin’ Up!® team.

Lots of crafters are now realising what fun it would be to become a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator – make sure you don’t miss out on the fabulous 10% off deal which runs until 13th November. Send me an email if you want to find out more.

On to today’s project... this was one of the cards we made at my Contain Yourself 2 class, where everyone covered a tin and made six cards to go inside. I was really worried that I was overstretching things so bullied them into working fast... and most people finished early! It helped that we made two of each card and, of course, all the supplies are already cut up and ready.

The colour scheme for the evening was Rose Red, Perfect Plum, Certainly Celery and So Saffron, which I think go really well together. I really like this card made with Circle Circus. I like all the Rose Red circles peeping out from behind the main image and I think the Whisper White greeting, stamped in our new Craft ink pad, really stands out.
