I stamped the circles from Big Thanks in Versafine and heat embossed with clear powder - love the shine. Then I randomly coloured the circles with my Promarkers, matching them to the colours from the challenge. I used a square punch to cut the squares, leaving space on one square for a simple sentiment. The ribbon is some that I've had for ages, but with the metallic border it seemed perfect for a guy card. I decorated the inside of the card too - just a simple greeting. Actually, I like the layout of the inside and I think it'll make a good card at some point in the future!!
In hindsight, I should have stamped the whole panel and cut the squares with my guillotine - which would have meant the circles lined up. But as I had to get it in the post, this is it!!!
It's only just gone 4.30pm and it's getting darker; I don't like the shorter evenings! Compared to the UK we've had an extra week of summer time, but the clocks go back this weekend and to me that means it really is autumn. While I've enjoyed the colours of autumn I'm not looking forward to the arrival of winter. I love the look of snow, but in reality it's a pain!! Sorry, must stop whinging!! See you soon.
