Absolutely Fabulous!

Happy Sunday!
Today I have a shaped card to share.  It's not a fancy shape - just a circle, but I don't often create circle cards and I do {heart} them quite a bit!


I used Perfect Pearls to make everything pretty and shimmery!!! I'm lovin' the frame - I stamped it with SP and Company's Dainty Flourish background.  The frame was so blah and plain before I added that stamp.  Now, it looks like a completely different product.



I also used elements from the Sewing Chic set.  I can't get enough of this one.  I stamped the dress form and the sentiment on the tag in white ink and then I sprinkled the Pearls over them with a paintbrush.  This gives the images an iridescent effect.

And in case you're wondering how to create a circular card, it's really easy! Just cut two circles.  On the circle that is going to be the inside, score it at the top (I generally make the score about an inch and a half from the top) and attach it with STRONG adhesive.  Make sure it's the strongest you have - otherwise the card will pull apart.

Now, don't forget that this week kicks off the big celebration over at the Scrapmaster's Blog!  There is a week-long celebration going on that involves PRIZES!!!!!!!!!! So, check it out!

Thanks for stopping by today!
