Anniversary Challenge #5!

 We've got another FUN challenge for you to play along with!!!  

Challenge #5! - CIRCLE CARDS!!  Have you ever made a circle card??  It's so easy and so much fun!  You can use your Nestabilities or other types of cutting systems, or just use a plate and trace it!!!  Let's see your CIRCLES!!!

Here's a fabulous tutorial from the wonderful Krafty Girl, SANDIE!! 
Paper: My Mind's Eye Lime Twist
White Card
Classic Circle & Scalloped Circle Nestabilities
Viva Decor Paper Pen
Cuttlebug (or similar)
Paper trimmer

 1) Fold the white card in half and using the largest of the circle nestabilites cut out the card base. Run it through your cutter a couple of times to ensure it cuts through the two layers. Using the same size die cut out a circle of double sided patterned paper. If you are not using double sided papers cut 2 circles of coordinating paper. 
2) Taking the largest for the scalloped circle dies cut out the backing cardstock. 
3) Cut the patterned paper in half and use opposite sides. Adhere them to the cardstock and then adhere the cardstock to the white card base, ensuring that the front panel is straight. 
4) Colour your image, trim it out and adhere it to the front panel using 3D foam dots. Use some of the leftover white card for the sentiment, cutting one end into a fishtail and slipping the other end slightly under your image. To compete the card adhere some pearls or use the Viva Decor paper pen to make your own pearls. (You could also use buttons, etc, instead of pearls)

We hope you can play along !!  You could WIN some Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps AND you'll have a chance to become a Krafty Guest for December!!!  Pull out one of your Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and get krafty!!!
