Default F4A214 Round & Round (3/28/14)

Hi all! Jeanne here today!

Its my turn to host the Free 4 All Friday Challenge this week.

This week's challenge is to make a card with circles in the background. You can stamp the circles, draw the circles, use a sponge or even use patterned paper.

Keyword F4A214

F4A214 Gallery

Uploading: Remember the keyword is without spaces. Use a comma between keywords with a space after each comma.

If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us stamping!

Need help linking a card? Follow these instructions!

1. Open 2 windows: One window for your card and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Got to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.
Youre done!

I had fun with this challenge- just cleaned my craft table- so I could actually find my embossing folders I used 2 stamps from Great Impressions- and colored some of my spots with a yellow marker. Here's Delightful Flowers

I peeked last night before bedtime to see what the challenge was for today and when I saw "circles in the background" I groaned and shut down my computer. This challenge theme went round and round in my head all night, like a song that wormed it's way into my memory. Jeanne, you definitely picked a theme that was a challenge for me! It inspired me to use an impression plate that has been in my stash for years and never been used. Thanks for pushing me out of my comfort-nest with this challenge, Jeanne!

Had to pop in with another card that fell into place when I was picking up and putting away pieces left from the earlier card. This one uses the flip side of the PTI Sunshine impression plate that has smaller concentric circles.

Here it is:

Looking forward to checking out all the other cards entered in this challenge. I know they will provide lots of inspiration!

Heart F4A214 Delicious

Jeanne- great challenge! I was inspired to do this card based on the fact that I LOVE chocolate. I used MFT's Dip Me In Chocolate, and paper pieced the chocolate bar to make it "pop". Drew in some circles for my background, and added an embossed Spots and Dots embossed strip for my sentiment. I got so hungry, I took some "bites" out of my card Here's Delicious

I made a tag and stamped my background with a wonderful ornate circles background stamp I just got - I also combined my project with the Mix-Ability challenge and used shades of green.
