CPS285/BNH13 - Thanks

Happy Saturday!!! I'm not one for square cards, but
A) The sketch called for one and
B) My elements balanced best on a square card.

This is a card I'm entering in the Card Positioning Systems Sketch #285 and A Blog Named Hero Challenge #13.

My Distress Ink colorful circles were rejects from another challenge I was going to enter.  I didn't like the direction of the colorful panel I came up with, so I decided to punch three different size circles from that panel for this card.  I stamped a Hero Arts sentiment and then embossed the background with clear powder and the same Penny Black stamp.  I have to say - I love the look of the embossing on TOP of the sentiment!

Pretty clean and simple!

Here are the challenges:

Have a great day!

Thanks for your visit!

Isn't that funny, all I make pretty much is square cards! Love all the embossing, looks great!

I don't think I've ever even made a square card - but love yours! I'll also have to try the embossing on the sentiment too - great look!
Love all the different colored circles! Fantastic!

Hey Maria! I am still giggling from the comment you left on my blog today! Sorry about your mojo, but I wanted to tell you that I got a big chuckle from your comment. WTF, indeed!! Here's to bouncing back with a vengeance, although I could never tell your mojo is failing you. This card is fabulous and artsy. Love all that embossing and love the batik look to this! Happy WCMD to you!

This is fabulous! Love the CAS design with the pops of color... and that white-on-white embossing is gorgeous. :) Thanks for playing along in our 'White-Out' challenge over at A Blog Named Hero! xx
