Another Round Card

So, I really enjoyed making that lacey circle card yesterday, and had to make another. OK, well, this one isn't a lacey circle (having used up my one and only yesterday!), but it is a circle card and another rare-for-me shaped card. I just cut two circles using my Creative Memories templates and used Noelle's wonderful method for joining them into a flat-front card. Easy!

I mentioned yesterday that I've recently exhausted my supply of sympathy and get well cards. I'm still trying to build up my stash, so I thought this one could go either way with its "Thoughts of You" sentiment (from {ippity}'s Regal Greetings kit)--with the right message inside, this could be an appropriately somber sympathy card OR an elegant get well card. I like having that kind of flexibility.

I'm still using the Chick Challenges {with Ippity} #5 sketch for this week and playing along with {ippity}'s Mini Cards Challenge (this card is 4" in diameter).

I like how this turned out. I think I may be making round cards more often!

Thanks for dropping by for a little slice of bliss today. I hope you are having a fantastic weekend!
Emily

I'm a big fan of flexibility in sentiments too :) I love the sheer ribbon, and woohoo! on another shaped card. I've never made one that I liked, and I have Nesties so no excuse. I'm just a fan of corners, I guess.
It really sucks that you're low on get well & sympathy cards. It's the kind that you never want to use, but in my experience they are the ones that are most treasured by the recipients.
