Day 26 in the 31 Days of Angelosity

I'm cheating today. I'm just going to let you know from the start, OK? Today's card was not made specifically for my month long blogabration. I made this card previously for another challenge. But, I still thought this "sketch" would make a great challenge! And since my back's been on the fritz.... it gave me a nice break!
Without further ado, today's sketch challenge is a circular card!
I admit this will be a bit of a challenge. I wonder how many of you will actually attempt it! Just to make things a little more interesting, everyone who tries this challenge and makes a new card (never posted on your blog previously) will get a card from me in the mail along with a few little bits and pieces (RAK). Just be sure to email me your address after you post your card.



My card is not new. I posted it here back in June. But, it's one of my favorite cards. It sparkles and it's definitely unique!

Card Recipe:
Stamps~ Rhonna Farrer "Nature", "Flowers" & "Swirls" Stamps by Autumn Leaves, "Simply Stated" by Fancy Pants
Ink~ Palette Noir Black, Versamark, White (SU), Orchid Opulence marker
Paper~ Basic Black, Whisper White, Mauve Mist, ballet Blue, Close to Cocoa,
Accessories~ Blender Pen, Paper Piercer, Disco Black EP, Scalloped Scissors, 1/16" punch, White mini brads (MM), Black SU Marker (doodling), Blender Pen, Creative memories Circle cutting system

Only 6 days left in the Blogabration! So today I add 6 Alterable Items to the basket!
Included are:
1 CD Tin (pink hearts on top...but you'll cover this and it's a deep tin...nice)
3 1/2 x 5" Magnetic Acrylic Frame (great for refrigerator plaque or calendar)
Checkbook Cover (durable type plastic)
Mini Lunchbox Tin
Key chain Photo Album (blue gingham outside)
and
To-do List (I can't wait to make some of these....nice gift this time of year!)
Add all of this to your list from yesterday.....and that's a Lotta Shtuff!
WHO is going to win? Will it be you? Keep stampin!!!!

Good chilly mornin' to you. I was at my daughter's school this morning outside while the helicopter from Fox 2 News landed, needless to say I'm still defrosting, kwim?

Leave it to you to push the challenge even further. I thought I was doing good getting about half of your sketch's made. Now I have to think out side of my 'rectangle' box! Thanks for the inspiration!

Tricia said...

This was a great sketch. I've been seeing these everywhere... and ignoring them! Thanks for making me make one!! :)

Ok, I'm cheating, too! I made this card for a Disney Challenge, but I think I can slip it in here for the circle sketch!! I can't refuse a new challenge, so I will have to make a new one this afternoon just for this sketch! But for now, here's my Circle card!

Ooooh, I better hurry. I was on a stamping sabbatical for two days because I was busy reorganizing my craft room.

Love this sketch. . .and your card looks fabulous. I never made a round card so this will be fun!

Wow that is different. I guess I have a lot of catching up to do this weekend! I don't have a blog site, and will email you my "creations". Are you going to post them anywhere on your blog. Not that I want mine posted...but like to see everyone else's ideas. Just a thought ;)

It's me again! This is a great sketch. I actually had difficulties with this one for some reason but it worked out in the end.

I love you sample! It's very pretty.
