A Week of Circles, Day 1

Before beginning today, I just wanted to give a BIG thanks to all of you for your visits and wonderful comments last week on the Penny Black blog as part of the Cute to Elegant feature.  I was truly overwhelmed by your kindness and encouragement. THANK YOU!

This week I thought I'd feature Christmas cards that all have some sort of circular element.  To begin, here are two shaped cards which also feature a circular element for the sentiment.
Penny Black 30-136 A Wish for Peace was stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink, embossed with clear powder, and colored with Copic markers. I added Distress Ink (Forest Moss and Peeled Paint) over the stamped areas.  The sentiment is by Penny Black 4288F, Christmas Magic.
To create this card I stamped Penny Black 40-160 Ornamental with VersaMark ink and embossed with white powder.  I applied Wild Honey Distress Ink and stamped Penny Black 40-162 Crystal Pattern using Memento Peanut Brittle Ink.  I also added a few touches of Gathered Twigs Distress Ink for added depth.  The sentiment is by Penny Black, 4289E Beautiful Season.

Oh, and be sure to check out the Penny Black blog all this week for sneak peeks at the new Valentine release and giveaways!!
