Designer's Choice - C.O.M.

 I finished the Designer's Choice card for the Card of the Month Swap on  The thread is here.  January's theme was Designer's Choice.  So we were all able to choose our own alliteration for the month.  Everyone gets a chance to guess what the color and embellishment combination is for your card.  Mine was Purple with Parallelograms. Be sure to look at past months cards. We have some really great card makers in this swap.

 The design of the card came from a special Paper Cafts Magazine called Paper Crafts Remodeled.  I have wanted to use this design for a long time.  They have some awesome decorated bags as well as cards with this design and different embellishments. Simple, but cute.

The paper is from a giant 300 piece box from K & Company.  I got the box with a 50% coupon last fall.  It has a huge variety of papers and I was glad I was able to make some work.  The green & teal were from a Martha Stewart pack.  I cut the circles with the George cartridge on my Cricut.  I was having a little problem with the circles looking like circles, they turned out a little oblong.

Glad you were able to use two sheets out of those 300 you have... This is a great card, you know I like the retro look and love the colors too.
