Geometric Card Challenge and Tagged

I created this card for Allison's Challenge. This was truly a challenge for me and by far not at all my best. I decided to attempt a circle card (my first) I used Lasting Impression papers and cut circles out by hand, can you tell ? I used a 3/4" punch to punch out circles on bottom then inserted Prima flowers and added crystals I had lying around. The saying is from SU as is the larger flower. In the center of the flower is a stamp by Hero Arts. Although I don't like this card it may give others ideas. You can adapt this card to be a purse by removing the scalloped circle and adding a ribbon for handle.

Now for the Tag

I think that is a cute card. It looks like a little purse now. Maybe just a clutch purse *wink*. I am honored that you are adding my blog, and I have added yours as well . . . and bragged a little bit. I so wish my mom papercrafted with me like you and Kathy do. Mom is too busy with alpacas (see my blog for their site). :) Talk to you later, and I LOVED reading your Tags, too! :) Kel

This is super...you are too hard on yourself! I love your layering...it adds such dimension. And I see we are both peanut butter cup fans (how could you not be?)! Cheers!

I really like your circle card and the layering. It turned out so well. And it was fun to read about you too- we like the same kind of candy ;) And I definiely would like to build my own stamp room.
