There was a challenge on the Our Daily Bread design blog to do a card that wasn't the normal A2, rectangle or square card, so I decided to do another round card.

I won a free set of stamps and also won a $15 off of a set of stamps through ODBD, so now I have more stamps I can play along in the challenges :)

This stamp set is called Porch and it has some great verses to go along with this image.  I couldn't figure out a way to put the verse on the outside so I put it on the inside, I chose He restores my soul Psalm 23:3.  The image was colored with distress inks, except for the coffee cup and the flowers and leaves on the blue pillow which were markers. The image has foam tape under it.

I cut the shape with my Spellbinder Eyelet Circles die and then used my circle die to cut out the K&co. paper behind the image.

Martha Stewart seam binding, and Heidi Swapp bling.

The card shape idea came from Card Ideas for paper crafters Magazine page 16.  Cut two eyelet circles, cut off the edge and use my score pal to score 1/2 inch so that it could open and then used my score tape to hold the card together.

I was worried with the way the image hangs over the card if it would stand up but it does :)

Hope your having a good week so far,
Thanks so much for stopping by,
