This month's Calendar Girls challenge was to: choose a holiday in November (not Thanksgiving, but a little-known holiday) and create a card/project with that holiday in mind. Here's a link to Bizarre November Holidays: November Holidays 2012 (Official) Monthly, Weekly, Daily, Bizarre, Silly, Crazy, Unknown Holiday Observances
The holiday I chose was November 2...Look for Circles Day!
I made this card following a similiar style card I made several years ago at a stamp club. I used white, Night of Navy and Old Olive cardstock. The cirlce images are from the SU! set Seeing Spots and are stamped in Night of Navy, Old Olive and Taken with Teal. I decided to add the flowers backed by the Old Olive cirlces (which is different from the original card I made at stamp club) to change up the card a little. I added silver brads to the center of the flowers and the ribbon is Navy. The sentiment is from the SU! set Wonderful Words and stamped in Night of Navy. The entire piece of white cardstock with all the circles was stamped with an embossing ink pad and then covered in Iridescent Ice embossing powder and heated to get the sparkling look.
Thanks for stopping by and please be sure to check out all the Calendar Girls creations for their "little" known holidays. Well the holidays may be "little" known, their cards will be big time creations. See my sidebar for links to their blogs.
