Totally Gorjuss and Paper Players Challenges

The challenge at Totally Gorjuss this week was "As you like it" and at Paper Players it was "Anything Goes". I was playing with my new circle diecuts from Lifestyle Crafts that make the circles and the rings- so fun! I put three different sizes of rings together over a cuttlebug background and put gems in the intersections. For the focal point I used my new Tim Holtz die that does the cutting and folding for you to make a rosette flower. I wanted to use patterned paper but most tore but I was able to find this cardstock weight patterned paper that held together without tearing.


The inside of the card is fun too as I embossed the whole card and used the circles already cut out and a sticker to complete the card.
