Penny Black Saturday Challenge - a Circle Card

Thanks everyone who joined us last week at Penny Black Saturday Challenge , we seem to have more of you join in every week, we love visiting your blogs and viewing your fabulous take on each weeks theme. Well this week we would like to see a Circle card from you at little bit off a challenge but I am sure you will all rise to it. To see the cards from my fellow DT members and join in the challenge just click Here.

I used the Cricut Wild Card Cartridge to make this Circular Doiley Card, I think this must be the most useful of all the Cricut Cartridges as it has so many different styles of cards on there from Hearts to Owls. The Penny Black Easter Bunny Stamp is coloured with Copics (I must get back to using my Distress Inks as well, but am so loving these Copics, never thought I would). Sorry I am rambling today, to get on with this card the white and Green circles hve been cut with Nesties and I have threaded green ribbom through the edges, the ribbon was a RAK from my dear friend Pam (thanks dear), flat backed pearls are from stash.

I have used another PB Bunny for the inside coloured again with Copics.

Woodland Friends - Friday Sketchers

Its a lovely sketch this week from Carole of Stardust Gems and Ribbons, I have always loved Caroles cards and now I love her sketches it is a simple sketch but very adaptable. To see Carole's and the Other DT members inspiring cards and join the challenge just click HERE

Another Penny Black Image for this one, isn't it just so cute I only got it this morning and couldn't wait to use it. It has again been coloured with Copics then matted onto Green and Pink Base Card, I run the Green pearlescent card though the Cuttlebug Leaf Folder. The papers are imaginise. The tab has been punched with SU punch, sentiment is by Imaginise, rest from stash.

The papers have been carried over to the inside and have been punched with MSDP the little calendar stamp is by Imaginise, as is the Make a Wish rub on. I do not have a corner die so I had to make the photo corner, it was quite easy, punch out a 1" sq cut in half to make a triange, then cut another triangle from the middle of that one.
Did I explain that properly he!he!

Lastly I have recieved this lovely award from the sweet and talented
Julie, if you have not visited Julies blog please pop over you will not be disappointed. Thank you very much for this Julie Mwah!!!!!!

Thanks for looking
Jacqui xx

What gorgeous cards, love the circle one with the cute bunnies and the sweet little group in their PJs, I nearly brought that one at the Glitter pot. I may have to go back and do another order.

Jo Nevill said...

Back again ! Your circular card is just amazing. I love the PB images you have used and how clever to thread the ribbon through like that. I know what you mean about the Copic/ProMarkers taking over - I am in love with mine but I also still love my distress inks and I get them out for a play every now and again !

Take care and have a great weekend. Thanks too for your kind comments !

Love how you did the ribbon around your circle, very nice touch. Roamed around your blog, your cards and the heart box are beautiful, your Mum is going to LOVE it.
