Happy Hellos

I'm sneaking this one in under the wire....Stacey always has great inspiration with her Jewelry Color Inspiration challenge, but this is the last one! I just had to play, even if it meant staying up...and finding suitable colors.

Sitting in the basement the only part of the jewelry I could remember was the disc like shells, once used as currency. I'm sure I read a post where someone made a card with circle punches like this once, but I have no clue who! If it was you, let me know! I also decided to incorporate the serendipity technique, which I saw both Susan and Steph do this week for the Cuttlebug Spot Challenge. I thought I'd never get all those circles glued, but it was worth it when I ran it through the Big Shot with the lots of dots embossing folder.

I'm so sad to say goodbye to the Jewelry Color Inspiration challenges, because that was one of the first challenges I ever tried! Have no fear though, for Stacey promises to bring more inspiration with her new challenge.

  1. Love it, Caryl! I hope the lucky recipient appreciates all the hard work that went into making this one! The colors work great together :~)

  2. Wow, Caryl - this was a ton of work! Lots and lots of circles! Great card, and I only played that challenge once, but it was fun. Will be curious to see what comes next!

  3. I was SO going to try this technique too! I loved Steph's card using it. It looks amazing. LOVE your card Caryl!

  4. What a fun card, Caryl! The patterned circles are very cool! Thanks so much for playing in the JCI46!

  5. This is such a fun idea to use all those large punched circles then use the circle embossing folder over top. The dimension is terrific as is the color combo.


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment, they always make my day. I love to get feedback and would love to visit your blog too!
