CHF08 Challenge--Circles, Circles, Circles

We are ready for a new Cornish Heritage Farms Challenge. I am hostess for this challenge and I have chosen the theme -- Circles, Circles, Circles.

I used the digital stamp "Floral 11" , printed it out three times, colored each image with copic markers and used a 1 3/4 inch circle paper punch. Then I backed each circle with a black circle and a scalloped circle cut with spellbinders nestabilities.

On the white background I printed the "Happy Anniversary" image, embossed the background leaving a 1-inch strip at the bottom. I trimmed the background with a multi colored ribbon that I purchased at my local fabric store. The middle image has dimentionals behind it.

Hope that you can play along with us. for all the details please visit the Cornish Heritage Farms blog. I will look forward to seeing your card.

CHF07 Challenge -- Animals

Cornish Heritage Farms challenge this week is to use an animal on your card. The challenge hostess is Barb Gmitro-Best. Go to the Cornish Heritage Farms Blog to get all the details.You could win a $10 gift certificate.

For my card, I chose the digital image of a wolf which you can find here. What a handsome fellow. I printed out a fairly good size image, cut it out with a Spellbinders Nestabilities and sponged around the edges before taking it out of the frame. For the background, I used a piece of gray cardstock and embossed it in a folder that I had inked with  Memento London Fog. That makes the embossing really pop. Both the image and background were matted with black cardstock and attached to a white card base. I used the computer to print the sentiment. Hope you can play along with today's challenge.
