ABC Challenge - C is for...

Wow...we had another bumper week for entries again last week! I do hope that you'll find time to join us again this week...in fact we're running this challenge for two weeks...it's a busy period with a Bank Holiday this weekend here in the UK, and schools starting back again (eek!) after the long summer holiday...so we're giving you a little extra time to join in.
Our theme this week at the ABC Challenge is:

'C is for Circles'

This week we all very excited...because we're being sponsored by Whiff of Joy stamps...who have given us this cute Niki Racoon stamp as a prize for the winner of this challenge...not only that, but we've also been joined by one of their design team...the lovely Rach...who is our guest designer for this challenge.

So, on to my card...I created a circle card using the largest of my large scalloped Nesties. I layered a plain circle, embossed with the 'Snow Dots' Cuttlebug folder on top of that, before adding adding this cute little mouse...from the 'Holly-Jolly' set by Penny Black...it doesn't show up too well in the photo, but there's a touch of Woodware 'Fluffy Stuff' on the white bits of his Santa hat. I thought I'd try something a little different, and keep my card all white, to make the image really stand out...so to help define the layers, I distressed the edges of the plain circles.

Don't forget to stop by the ABC Challenge blog, for more inspiration from our design team...and our guest designer...and also to see who made it in to our Top 5 from last week's challenge.
