Cricut 360 Challenge #2 - Circle Thank you card

Hello - and welcome to week two and another great challege over at Cricut 360! Thank you to everyone who participated along with us and joined us for our first challenge - we hope you will join us again! I had so much fun browsing through all the entries - so much great talent and inspiration!!! This week, your challenge is to make a circle shaped thank you card. Here is what I made:

Because my Gypsy is on it's way to Provocraft to get replaced (insert sad face...) I was trying to figure out how to make a circle card. Kind of funny, but I forgot that there were cartridges that already had circle cards on them - and I didn't need my Gypsy to weld them together! (Hahaha...funny how easy it is to get stuck in a rut!) Anyway, one of those cartridges is Birthday Bash...and I happened to glance at my Scrappy Mom's stamps and saw the "Tons of thanks" sentiment...and just like that, I knew the elephant from Birthday Bash was PERFECT!!! I added lots of faux stitching on him, pop-dotted his ear for fun, and then couldn't resist, I put him on an Action Wobble! It was hard to get an action shot with the wobble, since the card kept wanting to roll away! So...I borrowed my daughters hand to hold it steady:

Finished off with a bit more doodling around the edges, and a bit of Baker's Twine on the side.

TONS of THANKS to you for stopping by today!!! Now...I want to see what you make - so go link up your circle thank you card at Cricut 360 for a chance to win this weeks prize:
