SSNOTIME91***HALF CIRCLES***


Today's challenge -- create a card using a large half circle as part of the layout. You will create your own layout. I think it'll be fun to see all that we end up with. Don't get me wrong -- the card does NOT have to be a circle or half circle, but there must be a half cirle as part of the basic layout. You may make your circle with punches, Nesties, whatever. Sharon's favorite way to get a large 1/2 circle is to trace her Corelle desert bowl, upside down. Once cut, it is a perfect 5.5" circle -- great for a card!!! Use whatever means you need to get a large half circle.
I immediately thought of balloons. I used a variety of circle punches and punched out some circles in bright colored cardstock. Keeping it simple I used white as the base and then attached the circles all around the card cutting off what I didn't need. The balloon and sentiment are from Autumn Leaves. A little glitter on the balloon and there you have it!! SIMPLE***

Really fun Janine, and a great idea for the half circles! Is it warming up over your way? It is just starting to here, but you would think it's April with the rain we've been getting! Have a great weekend!
