Mo's Challenge # 135

What Makes the World Go 'Round?

Mo's Challenge this week is to make a round card. I sell most of the cards I make and rarely make cards that aren't 7 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches, so this was a real challenge for me! I tried to design  my rocker card to fit that size envelope, but my measurements were off, so I'll have to make a custom envelope for it.

I like the style of these cards because they are easy for the recipient to display. It was fun to make, too!
The image I used is Mo's "Baby Boy S" that is also available in a bald version and as a girl.
The flowers were made with my new Memory Box "Cherry Blossom" die. I'm in love with their beautiful
designs! I want them all!

This is how it looks opened flat. The sentiment is on the back.

Image: "Baby Boy S" from Mo's Digital Pencil, Digital circle sentiment

Tools: Copic markers, Gold Spica pen, Cuttlebug with Memory box and Marianne dies, Nellie Snellen Embossing Leaf punch set, Circle Punches,  Glue dots

     Papers: SU! Daffodil, Teal, Garden Green, Neenah smooth white, Paper Pizzaz yellow gingham DP

Embellishments: Tiny brads, Doodlebug paper lace trim

We'd love to see how you'd design a round card, so see what you can come up with using one of Mo's images and enter for a chance to win a gift certificate to Mo's Digital Pencil!

Thanks for stopping in!

I love the fold of this card and the pretty vivid colors Elaine. I'm afraid I'm hooked on Memory Box dies too, plus a few others. LOL I need to pick your brain sometime about selling cards. Hugs!
