Circle Card Color Challenge

Hello there friends and happy Monday! The latest challenge over at Embellish is to create a circle card using these colors... Here is what I came up with...
I first cut the circle for the image panel and stamped one of the trees from Tree Trimming Trio in green. Then stamped the sentiment, from Signature Christmas, in brown over the tree. Embellished with buttons.
For the ribbon, I cut another circle (same size as the image circle), placed adhesive around the edges and ruffled the ribbon along the adhesive. For extra staying power, I stapled each ruffle into place. With dimensional adhesive I attached the ribbon circle onto a brown circle base then the image circle over the ribbon.

I have to admit... I have never made a circle card before! Don't know what took me so long to try it, I really like the way it turned out. Going to have to do it again soon.

Thanks for spending some time with me today, hope you enjoyed. Hope you have a great start to your week.

  4. This is absolutely stunning. The colours are perfect and love your button placement. I gave your french knots a try on my last post...but they don't look as beautiful as yours.
