Two CAS circle cards

Today's Clean & Simple Challenge on Splitcoast was "out of the box" technique. I got to be the Guest Designer this week and I had lots of fun with this!

I stamped the snowboarder and embossed with black. I traced a circle on the back of it and cut around the circle and around the parts that "stuck out" of the circle. I used a baja breeze circle to layer behind it just a little bit and then a larger Elegant Eggplant circle.

I created the "snow" with French Filigree background. 3 brads finished it off.

Another card with "out of the circle"! I stamped and embossed this image in white. I cut around the circle and around the top of the flower. I cut out the green and paper pieced it on top.

I put two strips of scallop trim punch white on a white base. Used some elegant black satin ribbon and a few buttons. This set is "Because I Care" (hostess set)

WOW Trish! BOTH are just awesome. Love both of them. I just got the "extreme guitar" and can't wait to play with it.
