CHNC challenge 198: anything round

I haven't blogged much this week, but that hasn't been because I haven't been crafting, it's because I've been mega crafting in preparation for a sale today to raise money for SAT-7. So I'll be missing for a while today, but back later.

This is my card for my CHNC challenge 198 where I am asking to see something round. I hope you will join in. You can use something round, perhaps buttons, brads - doesn't have to be a shaped card.

I created this scalloped circular card using an svg file from Birds Cards converted to use with the Scan n Cut with their canvas facility. This was cut on the Scan n Cut using DCWV textured cardstock.

The images are Bugaboo Stamps winter circle sentiments - chimney, printing this in four different sizes and then scanning and cutting with the Scan n Cut, colouring the middle one with spectrum noir pens. I just layered these rather than raising up to decoupage, conscious of postage cost being more with thicker cards.

As you can see I wasn't entirely accurate with sticking the circles on the front because you can see bits when opening the card - must remember to check this when I do similar cards.
