CPT #4 ~ The Splendor of Autumn!

Another rainy dreary day...blah. But a moment or two of creativity can sure lift the spirits. Not to mention that our master bath looks smashing with the new paint. It dawned on me as we were painting...our bedroom color is the softest pretty green by Martha Stewart called Winter Surf. And our master bath is now a soft whipped creamy shade of white called Snowbound. Hmmm I see a chilly pattern here ~ HA!  But enough of my silliness how about a card!

Following our Creative Paper Trade: Tip Top Shape challenge today we are asking to see your creations made using the simple shape of circles. Now how could I ~a polka dot girl ~ not include those sweet little circles on my card! My card base is one I picked up at Archivers a while back by Doodlebug Designs. Found it in my stash and it was the perfect bright green for our color story board. A pretty round paper lace doily was a fine circular backdrop don't you think. Next up I die cut yet another wee polka dot paper with one of my PTI limitless layers dies. Spellbinders labels 10 die holds my Paper Sweeties sentiment topped with a pretty felt flower crafted by Andrea Budjack and a couple of fussy cut autumn leaves. This sweet A La Art leaf stamp is near to my heart...it came from my son when he was in college. Little Abigail is dressed in her colorful autumn outfit and glammed up a touch with some purple gems...yet another sparkly example of a circle! And as much as I love my polka dots I think buttons fall into a very close second place. Yep that's right more circles!
 

And now I am happy to announce that comment #7 from Tracey McNeely is my give-a-way winner!!! Please email me your mailing info Tracey and I'll get your SU paper collection out to you right away!

That's it for me today friends. Remember you still have another week to link up with us at The Creative Paper Trade! Now go get yourselves busy! ~Lisa
