Gyspy Made Simple - My Circle Challenge Card

Good Day! Hope all is well for you today. I am so happy you decided to spend a little time with me today and hope you have a cup of coffee in hand and are ready to craft...


This is a quick video showing you how to make this card.... So simple you will want to make one too.


Here are the step by step instructions on putting this card together. I am sure you will find it easy to do... I am always a careful when I am following a challenge that has a prize attached.... an Imagine, can you imaging winning!!!
Here is a close up giving you a great view of the dimension in this card. I just love the colors as it reminds me of the ocean with the blues and teal. I used the dotted Swiss folder in my Cuddlebug. The accordion center was done by taking a 4.75x12" sheet of vellum. I used my Martha Stewart Scoreboard and scored every 1/2 inch. Then turned upside down and score it on the 1/4 mark between each existing score mark. Then all you need to do is fold on the lines and you have the accordion center ready to go.
Here is another close up along with my challenge. Make a project ANY project and link it up. Let's see what you are up to this week. All entries must be in by 3:00 pm on October 21st to quality. The winner will be announced on the 22nd and will receive a little monogrammed note card set. I just love to see all your project and what you have been up to all week. Now if you make 3 projects you can enter 3 times but it must be for this challenge so it must be current not something you did last week or last month.
Thank you for your sweet sweet words of encouragement. You comments continue to inspire me to share with you!
