Hava a Koala-ty Day!

This is my first circle card...I was so surprised at how easy it was to make. I followed the Ismaki Challenge # 20. Of course I am about a week late...but I just had to try my hand at this and the sketch was So Wonderful!!

Both the Cute "Sydney Koala" and the fabulous sentiment is from High Hopes

The Koala is on foam dimensionals. I used stickles on the leaves and put a little glitter on the flowers.

The buttons are from Tina and Bethany at High Hopes....I just love the look of these buttons!!

I curved the sentiment to stamp on the circle base. I had mounted the stamp with a very thin foam easy mount which enabled me to curve it on my acrylic block to stamp.

The image was colored with prismacolor pencils(oms) and Twinkling h20's

Paper: whisper white, coffee brown cs, costco, basic grey

Ink: versafine black, bashful blue, creamy caramel

Accessories: flowers, buttons, embroidery floss, hole punch, ribbon, stickles, glitter, acrylic white paint, stitching, needle piercer


Blog Candy

I have come back to edit ....I uploaded this card so late at night I forgot to mention that I also made it to participate in Bernie's Blog Candy at CraftB. Bernie has a Fantastic Blog, Beautiful Creations and is sharing great blog candy. All you have to do is make a card with something you have'nt used in a while. For mine it is the hole punch for the ribbon and the needle piercer.


Another thing I forgot was that the ribbon treatment idea was from Katharina at Katharina's Creative Place and you can find her Wonderful Tutorial on Ribbon right here. Thanks Katharina for the great ideas!!

I am going to have to start writing things down or post in the morning


Have a Great Day! Thanks for looking and all your Wonderful comments!!
