Hi everyone,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Being a brand new month it is  time to introduce our new challenge hostess for the month which is Liz Williams.

Sister’s Day! As many of you know, or perhaps you don’t, Lynn and Liz are sisters. When we were asked to join the CCEE team together, we both thought it would be fun to be doing this together. So, for your sister card, find an image of a pair or group of ladies or girls who just might be sisters doing things that sisters like to do. 

For my card today I have created another Twist Circle Pop Up using the new Twisted Circle Card die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. I am loving this new die set which is being released in August.

To decorate my card I used a stamp set from Art Impressions.

Here is look at my card when it is half closed, you can see how the circle is turning so that the girls heads will be at the side of the card rather than the top of the card. The circle on the card twists as the card opens and closes.

For the front of the card I added the "Hi" sentiment which is also included in the die set along with all the various circle layers I included on this card.

The CIRCLE TWIST is great, and you have "done it proud" with this how you inlaid the "Hi."
