DYI Challenge #7

Our CSALY challenge this month was to create our own card with our own layout! This was a fun challenge. I have made these circle cards before and love them. I like to score the left side and place eyelets or brads. I have had these adorable Rudolph brads for years and LOVE using them. The colors so not show up very well in the picture because of lighting but they look MUCH better in person!
I used Stampin Up! card stock colors: Kraft, Real Red, Kiwi Kiss, and Handsome Hunter. I ran the Kiwi Kiss and Real Red through SU Texturz Plates. I used brown Stazon on the what was a silver chip holding my sentiment as I thought it was too bright.
Be sure to check out all the other Challenge Diva's DYI cards at the CSAYL blog. You can also see all the cards made by other stampers from last weeks challenge! You know you want to play along with us and get a jump start on your holiday cards!!
