Go for the Gold!

Saturday, February 15, 2014

Hey guys! I'm here with a special weekend post! I'm participating in a card challenge, so I need to get my post up in time to share. Yeah... nothing like waiting until the last minute! {Be sure to grab the free Silhouette Studio USA file below.}

The theme of the card this week is clean meaning, not frilly or overly designed. While I was brain-storming what I wanted to make for this week's challenge, I pulled inspiration from the Winter Olympics (which have been on my TV for the past week non-stop).

The card challenge is hosted by Freshly Made Sketches and features a design sketch to follow when designing the card for the challenge. The sketch we were given this week was what I'm going to call.... little circles

There are some really great cards linked up for this week! Since this is my first week participating, I hope I'm following all of the rules correctly (since I didn't use circles - eek).
