Circle Challenged

**500th POST GIVEAWAY**
This is post #492...be sure that you are a follower of my blog
as I will be giving away a GRAND PRIZE on the 500th post!
(Some of the previous posts weren't numbered right...we're on track now!)
-----------------------------------------------------------------


The Monday Challenge at Bella Blvd this week was
"Incorporating Circles Into Project Design"
My personal challenge was using this concept on cards, but you must go by
the Bella Blog and see the great layouts that some of the other girls made!

I love circles and dots, so this challenge was perfect for my collection of round embossing
 folders and punches! First, I embossed the base of the card with a large polka dot folder. 
Next, I took a 1/4" circle punch and punched several pieces from one of the sections of the 
 Daily Details paper. I added them around the journal card with small foam squares. 
Other various-sized round embellishments were then added to complete the theme.

Supplies:Christmas Countdown: Alpha+Bits, Daily Details, Captions; Button Market: Text

 Use a pretty round lace die as the base for your wreath on this card; punch out the center. 
1/2" circles were punched from the O Tannenbaum paper and layered side-by-side onto the
 lace die cut with foam squares. Next I added another layer of the circles so that they were 
off-set with the circles below. Add pearls or rhinestones for a little added detail.  

Supplies:Christmas Countdown: O Tannenbaum, Paper Pieces; Freestyle Sophisticates: Freestyle McIntosh; Birthday Girl: Party Dress; Crochet Hearts: Gulf

The 2013-14 Bella Blvd Design Team will be announced on September 24th!
Keeping my fingers crossed and wishing GOOD LUCK to all who applied...it's a fabulous team to be on :)
Have a great weekend y'all!
