Power and Spark Challenge - Round and Round

      What does Round and Round mean? 

Here is what Stacy wants us to do.  


Round & Round”. Round those corners, use a rounded mat or take it to the extreme and make your entire card round. 
I was going for a totally round card but decided to add a base and then just round the corners. 

 Using the brown family of card stock and envelopes and ink, I stamped the Power Poppy Natural Beauties stamp in Memento Rich Cocoa ink.  I was going to color this up, but just love the vintage look, so I just colored it with my Prismacolor pencils.  I shaded the cast shadows and just left it as is. I also used a cream linen cardstock that added to the vintage look that I got. 

Those jumbo raindrops are from my stash.  Something that I found recently when cleaning up my stuff.  Never know what you have.  I also found the  6X6 brown envelopes that completed this card. 
 I think I may make another one of these round cards.  Lol
Thanks for your comments they really and truly are appreciated.



  1. So very gorgeous and I love the monochromatic design in those colors. The round shape is perfect on the rounded corner panel.

  2. this is a beautiful card and I too like the monochromatic design.

  3. This is glorious! Lovely roundness all a'round'. And the colors....oooh they remind me of my beloved coffee each morning, which I am enjoying right now! The floral image is perfect. Fabulous!!!

  4. Okay I adore this... from the tiny mushroom in the corner to the warm colors. Fantastic card!

  5. This is just beautiful, I love the color palette. Great use of that stamp set. I own that and haven't really given it much attention. Thanks for the inspiration here!! Great take on the challenge too, that round background just makes this card!
