Framed with Circles Card Challenge

If you are looking for my guest designer card you will find it here.

 Well, I couldn't make my mind up which picture was the best so folks I included all 4.  Which is down from 17.  I think I spend more time trying to take and pick a picture then I do making the card. 😉   This was a fun card to make for the challenge at: Cards in Envy  "Framed with Circles"  What a neat concept.  So I began by die cutting multiple circles on my card.  Adding a few layers and then the stamping began.  After I coloring the bird and branch I fussy cut them out and placed them so they had just enough room in the big circle.  Onto the medium sized circle, I knew a peek-a-boo door would work perfectly with a cute sentiment behind it.  Now for the smallest circle which posed the biggest problem for me.   As usual I couldn't decide if I wanted a black snowflake on white.. or white on red card stock.. oh the dilemma.  I chose Red with a white pearl on top.    I stamped a few white snowflakes for the back ground.  Punched out a little white flake for the peek-a-boo door and added a jewel.  I then pulled out my pearl paint.  I added it to the trim, the puff ball of the hat, and all the little dots around the circles.  I think it finished it off nicely.

On a completely different topic.  My husband had to take a dish to pass for work yesterday.  So I prepared for him a slow cooker of kielbasa, corn and hominy.  The guys were very pleased, and had no idea what the "white stuff" was.  So cute.   They liked it.  YAY❕

Also: Did ya all notice the blue ink on my finger.  Oh yeah, I can't seem to make a card without a mess.

 Thank you so much for stopping by.
I'd love to have you follow my blog.
Keep Smiling and Keep Stamping.
