Weekly Circle Challenge

Well, today is another dreary ice day. I'm kinda down in the dumps-no big reasons why, just a bunch of piddly little aggravations, but I think it's mostly sun deprivation. We don't get a lot of this kind of weather and the last two weeks have been a little difficult as far as getting around, cold, ice, snow.

So I decided to get busy and do a Circle challenge. The challenge was to use a shape 3 times and to use spray ink.

I used SU real red and cut the flowers from Walk In My Garden out of SU Real Red scraps, the stem/leaves cut is also from WIMG and I used scraps. The grass was a small piece of dotted paper in my scraps also and was cut using Plantin Schoolbook. The middle of the flowers were done using the Cuttlebug Snowflake #2 die. I thought they were a little big for this shape of flower but really like how it looked on the red. The sun was cut three times from Doodlecharms and I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Caramel Apple on the top layer of the sun and it made the yellow look sparkly/golden. The face on the sun is a free font I got off the internet called "Face-Off".

I glued everything other than the sun on white Georgia Pacific cardstock and ran it through the Cuttlebug using the SU Textured Impressions folder. I then pop dotted the sun and placed it in the corner. This card is kinda happy looking and brightened up my day.

Hope everybody out there is staying warm!
