Teapot Tuesday Challenge - Dodge Ball Shaped Cards

Hi there everyone. Today's card is for the Teapot Tuesday Challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers. The Challenge this week was to make a "Dodge Ball" shaped card. Believe me this card is so round it wanted to roll right out the door....lol I had to put it in this holder to take a picture. This weeks destination is Stuart Florida to Sandy who is going through her second bout with breast cancer.

This is the first time I have made a round card like this. I have made some round easel cards with nestabilities but this is different. This is 5-1/2" round and was cut with a Martha Stewart round circle punch. The image is from the Fred She Said Store and is called the Sentimental Flower Doodledallion Set. This is such a fun set as it comes with several sentiments for the inside of the flower and some pin pricking patterns as well. I used the Martha Stewart Gothic Arches corner punch to punch the a design around the paper. I also used a spellbinders floral doily motif die. The butterflies are a large and small punch from Martha Stewart. The paper is from K & Company. Thanks for stopping by.
