A Spoon Full of Sugar Circle Challenge


What a gorgeous day in Southwestern Ontario today. We've been having so many storms and a lot of rain lately that I expected more of the same today. I've been stuck inside doing laundry. Imagine my surprise when I opened the front door only to hear the birds chirping and feel the warmth from the sun.

It's so nice that I decided to take the picture of my submission to A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge out on my deck. This is my first challenge on A Spoon Full of Sugar and since I have some beautiful Rachelle Anne Miller images kindly sent to me by Bernie at Craftyb, I decided to use one for the challenge. The card is for my niece who turns 6 on Christmas day. Isn't it nice to combine a challenge with an event - lol?

Designer paper and cardstock is from DCWV's Spring matstack. I used the Spellbinder dies for the large circle accent pieces and ran them through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dot folder. The small flowers were punched out with EK's small Paper Shaper Flower Power punch and Hero Arts Gemstones attached to the centres. I shaped the Hanna sentiment into a semi-circle and stamped it with Memories ink right onto the circle. The image was coloured with Tomobow markers which I haven't used in ages.

Check out
