LOTV Challenge Sneak Peak and Colour Create!

Thank you so much for coming by my blog today! 

I'm going to apologize straight away about the quality of these photos.  It was awful outside when I took these and so I had to take them under a light.  Somehow there just is never enough light when I do that to get a clear picture. Anyhow.......We're back with a new challenge at Lili of the Valley.  This time the theme is circles!!! Just make sure you incorporate a circle in your card.

It is also a new challenge day for Colour Create.  Sharon has picked out this yummy inspiration photo for you!

You can use: Melon, Apple, Banana, Kiwi, Cherry, Orange, Strawberry, Pineapple, Papaya, Coconut, can also use the black seeds. The extra option is to have fruit on your card.

I choose the colors of a watermelon for my card and have a few strawberries in the paper. 

So as you can see I used another sneak peek from the soon to be released Lili of the Valley stamps.  This one is called "BUNNY CUPCAKES".
Now here is what the circle looks like when you spin it around!

Now this may help you see a little better on how this card works:

Kinda neat huh?  I think it is pretty self explanatory so there should be no need for instructions, but if you have questions, just email me.  A fishing line is sandwiched between two circle pieces going from the top of the card to the bottom and sandwiched again with the front of the card and another piece of cardstock behind that.  Nothing hard or new, just fun!

My image is colored with copics and all the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I used some of the new sparkly rhinestones from Wild Orchid in the corners (love these).  I used the small retro punch for the yellow flowers and added small rhinestones in the middle in hot pink.

That's about it for me today! Please take a moment to go see what all my teamies have done with these two challenges.  You are sure to be inspired!!!
Thanks again for visiting!!!

Hugs, Dena
