Penny Black Saturday Challenge #34 - Circle Card


Well, here we are at Saturday again before we know it, so it must be time for another Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Wow - what a fabulous response last week to our "frame it" challenge - many thanks to everyone who took part. Don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog to see who won last week's prize.

This week we have another fab prize kindly donated by Paula at


It is the following two downloads - how fab is that?




So what do you need to do to be in with a chance of getting your hands on this great download?

This week's challenge is to make a circle card - I had never made one before but when it came down to it I found it easy enough to do. I just cut two circles from card using my X-Cut shapecutter (nesties would do just as well but your card would be smaller), and scored a line about 1.5 cm from the top of one - then I stuck them together so that the scored line would form the "hinge" when the card is opened.


Recipe:
Main image: Penny Black "Duckling" (kindly given to me by my friend Kaz), coloured with watercolour pencils.
Sentiment: Penny Black "Think Spring"
Paper: DCWV "Pocket Full of Posies", cut into a fancy circle using papermania Multishaper punch "Spring Garden"
Supplies: Flowers - WH Smith & Cardology; brads - Doodlebug sugar coated; charm - from my stash.

Thanks for looking and hope you all have a great weekend. Don't forget to check out the other DT cards for this challenge as they have made some really adorable circle cards :-)
