The challenge this week is to round some corners. Thats it, no other rules. Any kind of rounded corners work — be creative and feel free to interpret a round corner in any way that seems logical to you!!! It’s all about the creative process, nohard and fast rules!!! Try to remember our overall theme, and keep it simple!!!

Check out Julie Koerberssample. It is striking! So beautiful!

Check out Dee Jackson’s sample. She focused on the *round*!!! Great card!!!

And my super simple sample is below.

Here’s my sample and I merely rounded 2 corners — simple, but I like it — rounding corners is such a simple thing and it sure does change the appearance! My tag, which was a punch, has many rounded corners, my cake and oval plate are *roundy*, my little flower has rounded petals, and my gorgeous May Arts scalloped ribbon has rounded scallops!!! So I got all sorts of round edges in there – LOL!!!

The cake and tag are up on dimensionals, the tag is tied on with embroidery floss, and the Prima is attached with a brad. There are sparkly gems on my frosting, a RAK from my Canadian Elf — thank you!!! That about sums it up!

Both stamp sets, Cake Decorating 101 and Many Sentiments, the Two Scoops paper pad and the May Arts ribbon are all available from Flourishes.

  • Stamps: Cake Decorating 101, Many Sentiments, both by Flourishes
  • Paper: Barely Banana, Old Olive, Prism Light Pink, Summer Picnic by SU, Two Scoops by BG
  • Ink: Versa Fine Onyx Black
  • Accessories: Ribbon, Brads, Eyelet, Cropadile, Primas, Embroidery Floss, Gems, Dimensionals, Tag Punch, Corner Rounder

That’s it for this one!!! Thanks so much for checking in — hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!!

    Hi Sharon, You would think with no school today I would have been first again, but it took me a long time to feel up to playing. So, once again I combined challenges as this is probably all I’ll get to. Your sample is so pretty. Love the paper pieced cake with the bit of bling and the ribbon and tag are so soft and feminie. Beautiful card. Here’s mine:

Thanks for a challenge I could use with what I needed to get done!
