November Diva Dare - Day 12

Hi Verve fans!  It's Julee here, wrapping up the final day of our Shape Up November Diva Dare.  This month's dare is to feature a common shape on your card (think hexagons, chevrons, arrows, triangles, hearts, stars, etc.) My card is brought to you by the common circle.  {grin}




When I came up with this month's dare, I had envisioned making a card with all sorts of hexagons, using punches and dies and stencils I've been collecting.  Alas, the world seems to be spinning madly on and I didn't have time to both find all those treasures in my chaos and create something, so I decided to postpone that project and make something with this week's Mojo Monday sketch. Two birds, one stone, ya know?

Anyhow, circles are a favorite shape of mine and I've highlighted them here with rhinestones and scallops and snowflakes and jingle bells and polka dots and even a lacy border punch for the bottom of the card!  Pretty simple stamping... the sentiment from Holiday Treats is stamped in Wild Wasabi and the small snowflake from the same set is embossed in white on designer paper and then hand trimmed.

Supply List
Stamps: Holiday Treats (Verve Stamps)
Paper: Christmas Basics (DCWV), white
Ink: wild wasabi (SU!), 
Accessories:  wild wasabi ribbon (SU!), white scrapper's floss (Karen Foster), glittered jingle bells (Michael's), rhinestones (Pizzazz Aplenty), Classic & Scallop Circles Nestabilities (Spellbinders), doily lace border punch (Martha Stewart)
