Cropped Event - Cheri's Challenge

For my current giveaway, click here.
Here is my card for the 3rd challenge at the Cropped Event.

  I'll come back later tonight and add all the details.  Check back soon.

So the challenge was to use the color teal and 7 circles.  This was one I could do.  I headed to the Mystery Box from the Cropped Event and found this gorgeous swirl paper as well as the teal paper.  I can't remember the name of the swirl paper (and I'm 4 hours away from home), but I know that it is double sided and said something about "My Fair Lady" on the other side with cameos.  I grabbed my circle punches and believe that I used the 5/8", 1/2", 1", and 2" one to cut my circles.  I then grabbed my favorite card base card stock - Vintage Cream from PaperTrey Inc. and we were ready.

Here's what all you need:
4 1/4" X 11" card base - Vintage Cream from PTI
teal mats X2 - 4 1/8" X 5 3/8"
teal swirly mats X2 - 4" X 5 1/4"
My Mind's Eye Lost and Found 2 Blush pad in 6X6
Nestabilites (I can't remember which one I used here - sorry)
Hero Arts stamps - All Occasion Messages
Tim Holtz Distress Ink  -Iced Spruce
Stickles
Say it in Pearls bling - Prima

The card opens like a book with the spine on the left side.  Everything was inked with the distress ink.  The circles were cut from the teal paper and the MME paper.  I cut apart some bling from Prima and nestled under the edges of the dress form from MME.  Stickles were used to highlight some of the features on the page.

This was a super simple card.  When it was all done, I decided to alter a bag to match.  You'll have to check back soon.  Until then,

Take time to enjoy the little things.
