Dare U 2 Digi Stamp...Shaped Card

Morning all...I'm back with another card for you...the last two weeks have flown by and we have a new challenge for you today over at Dare U 2 Digi Stamp...this weeks challenge theme is A SHAPED CARD and I thought I'd try my hand at making a circular easel card...I used my Cricut Expression to cut the scalloped card base and also the patterned paper...I had to do some hand cutting too to make the card completely circular...if I hadn't done the hand cutting then there would have been a flat edge where the fold would have been...I can see me making more of this style of card as its a nice change from the square easels that I have done in the past!

My design team buddies have made some amazing cards for this challenge...please pop over and take a peek at their work...we would love for you to join in this challenge with us!

Design Papers : SU! (Can't remember which ones)
Colouring Medium : Promarkers
Card Stock : SU! Ruby Red
Embellishments : Ribbon & Gems from my Craft Stash!
Tools : Cricut Expression, Nestability Circle Dies, Making Memories Slot Punch

Donna, this is indeed a lovely easel card and I love the circular cut - you did a wonderful job cutting it out so there isn't a flat side - this is awesome! I love that cute little image and placement of the gems - really clever and the bow as the stopper; very nice!
