Ok, I do not know how to make a round card and have a back on it so I made a card with rounded corners and rounded edges on the nestability and round circles on the embossing folder and I am on time.....I think I achieved the challenge. Oh and little circles on the dp which I would like to refer to as mini colorful dodge balls.
This card is going to Sandy who has been hit more times than most with very difficult situations and is still standing. The really awesome part of Sandy's story is that she is not feeling sorry for herself but wants to still help others!!! I am so proud to be able to send a card, a smile and a hug through the mail to her.
I did buttons, Cindy. Sassy Cheryl's came to my rescue again with your storyline......bring it on missy....I am on speed dial to their site!!!! Hey I am even acting a little SASSY!!!!
Great story and great destination too. I love Tuesdays....and yes, it is still Tuesday!!
hugs to all of my sisters!!

Just what are you drinking over there in the mile high city? Boy, you truly are a little "sassy" tonight! AND I like it. Love your spunkiness, it shows in this fabulously made and on time card of yours. Your "button" dodge balls are so cute. Love that dotted look like dodge balls dp. All your rounded corners are perfect. I love this card. Well done. TFS :0)

I love your not round card. Pssst. If you seriously don't know how. You cut 2 circles or any shape you want, like a spellbinders die. You take the one that will be the back and score a line right across the top about 1/2 to 1 inch from the top
You put 2 sided tape on the top scored section and attach it to the front. You now have it hinged along the top inside edge of the inside back.
After all that I also made a square card. he he he

If you have Nestabilities, round cards are easy. If not - well, you're better off sticking to a lovely card like this with lots and lots of circles - even that embossed background, I see. And that sweet, sweet image - I love those happy pink buttons.
p.s. - I don't make mine like Elizabeth. I fold a piece of card in half so it's about the right size, but I lay the die so that it's about a quarter of an inch over the fold, and then I put it through the Wizard. Unless it's very thick card it cuts in one pass. That gives you a nearly circular card :D. Some people are happy to leave them like that - I like to cut another full circle and use that as my card front.
