Pile it on #13 -- Make it Round + one more

Happy Sunday! So I have been looking forward to the pile it on challenges on Sundays, and this weekend the challenge is to make it round and that could have been polka dot dp or a circle nestie on an A2 card, but the first thing that came to mind was a circle shaped card. For my second challenge, I am using the color challenge from the Aug 22 Our Creative Corner challenge blog. The challenge was to use the new InColors, and I took that to mean all of the new Incolors ;p

So, to be perfectly honest, I am not thrilled with this card. So, why post it you ask? It took me so stinkin long to make it I just had to post it! LOL

I stamped the sentiment on some acetate. My husband gave me this huge roll of this acetate back when he was packing up his office to go to Iraq and although I have wanted to use it I have not really known how. I tried to cut it with my nesties & cuttlebug and that didnt work out so well, so after I finally got the sentiment to stamp somewhat cleanly, I just cut it out and added the ribbon. I did stamp with stazon jet black thinking it would be easy peasy. Maybe today is just not a good crafting day for me!

Here are the details:
Stamps: everyday jar-gon (cdstamps)
Paper: rich razzleberry, crushed curry, mambo melon, bahama bay, whisper white
Ink: Stazon Jetblack, mambo melon, crushed curry, rich razzleberry,
bahama bay, dusty durango
Tools/Accessories: Circle & Pinking Circle nesties, watercolor pen,
soft suede & bahama bay ribbon, acetate, staples
