Round Card for VSN


The January VSN night at SCS was the very first time I had ever participated in such an evening/weekend. It was a blast and way more difficult than I had ever imagined. Making the cards wasn't the difficult part, it was doing it under the time constraints. When it started, I did the first three cards in real-time, meaning that I kept the stop watch going and created for 45 minutes, cleared up for 10 minutes and back at the computer for the next round. I did that for three hours and felt like I had run a marathon! It was then I decided to print off each challenge and do it within the hour, but not in real-time. Anyway, doing that made it easier, but I still did not complete all of the challenges. Kudos to those who did, they must be amazing crafters, truly dedicated to their craft. Anyway, here is the first card ever made for a VSN night by me. The first challenge was Circle of Friendship and I went all out with a round card, the round stamped image, the round corners and the little round face. I'm actually dizzy just typing "round" so many times. All this in aid of an extra Bingo number. So, for today, we have nine numbers to call. Ready.....


I19 - Daily Number
N31 - my card above
I27 - Wanda
B14 - Cathy
O69 - Melissas
N32 - Cathy
O65 - Wanda
B8 - Alex
G57 - Kim

Supplies:
Cardstock: Bazill Bling Lime
Stamps: The World Over, Circle of Friendship, Sugar Nellie
Ink: Palette Hybrid Black, Handsome Hunter
Accessories: Cuttlebugged background using Friendship embossing folder, Copic Markers

Wonderful card! I would never be able to be that creative under pressure. Seems like I need to "mull it over" a bit and play with possibilities before starting in on the final idea. I should maybe give that challenge a try just to practice being spontaneous and quick! Thanks for sharing; I love that Lime Bazill Bling.
