I just love the colors and patterns in this photo!  

I decided to create a card using the 3 & 4 inch fabric circles from the Card Makers Series (CMS). I wanted to replicate the circle with the imperfect outline and they worked perfectly for it. 

I printed the circle on my printer and then cut it out cutting some of the black border away. I then used my sewing machine and black thread to replicate the imperfect outline of the circle, it was quite fun! 

For added interest I added a punched border to the fold part of the card, along with some Prima flowers and a Recollections brad. A simple yet beautiful card to use for a Thank you, wedding, etc.

I wanted to play around with the CMS circles some more, so I went to work and created this fun Halloween card!  

I re-purposed some Halloween gift tissue to make a fun frilly trim for this card.

I hope you enjoyed my projects today and will join us at Papercraft Star for the challenge this week. I would love to hear from you, please leave a comment and let me know what you think! If you have any questions about either card, please feel free to ask.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Both of your cards are wonderful !! Aren't those fabric circles so rich, and you used them perfectly. The circle/circle/circle theme is charming. GREAT JOB !!!

How clever! Regan, I love how thoughtful you were to replicate the circles on the cake. And the witch flying over the moon - how adorable! Love, love, love your cards!

Girl, that stitching just blew that card off the charts! I didn't even pay attention to that wonky circle in the pic. Great eye! I saw your witchy card on the DT blog and tried to leave a comment but Blogger was acting crazy and it just kept clicking and acting like I wasn't a member of the blog. How rude! :-) Anyway, your little broom rider looks great against that background and the tissue paper is a fun touch. Awesome job!
