A Balanced Circle!

mft-balanced-circle-wm

Happy Monday everyone!

It is time to start the MFTeaser’s in readiness for the release of 6 new stamps sets which will be released by MFT Stamps on Wednesday 7th October.

Of course being Monday that also means it is time for another CCEE Stampers challenge. As it is also the start of a new month that means we also have a new challenge hostess for the month which is Tosh Leyendekker. Tosh is making us all “Shape Up” this month and to start the month off challenged us to create a round card.

My circle was created on the cricut machine and I just had to use the new MFT Stamps “A Balanced Holiday” set …. I just love this set. Also included in the set are a number of sentiments and some fun smaller stamps for ornaments and parcels which you could also add to your tree. For this card today I didn’t use the extras but instead decorated my tree with various colors of Swarovski Crystals. I wish you could see the sparkle of this card in real life.

Here is the inside of my card using another one of the sentiments included in the set.
