A Seed of Kindness 61

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, March 8, 2011 @ 3:56 PM | , , , ,

Hi there! Hope you are off to a great week~we're almost half way there! I had some "me" time to create and this is what I came up with:
I took on this week's MOJO Monday #181 sketch challenge. Oh my~this sketch had my head spinning! All the panels required some SERIOUS planning. Nothing CAS about this bad boy! :) LOL
Rather than adhering the sentiment on top, I created a frame using 2 various sized circle die templates, placing one on each side of the stamped image then cut and embossed using the GC-001 Grand Calibur:
That's all I have to share today. Thanks so much for looking! Hope you have a good one :) Be Sweet!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: JustRite Stampers Kaleidoscope, Seeds Of Kindness Borders & Centers
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® 293 Lacey CirclesS4-116 Standard Circles SM, GC-001 Grand Calibur
Paper: My Mind's Eye Lush Collection, October Afternoon
