Get Funky- Funky 15th- Going Round In Circles

Welcome to another Get Funky challenge, the first one of the year and as you can see it has now moved to the Funky Fifteenth of the month.
It's my turn Allison to set the challenge and the challenge I have picked is

Going Round In Circles

so I want to see all sorts of circles on your projects whether it's on the paper, card shape and so on
The main rule that you must use at least one Funky Hand product remains the same and to help you take part this month there is a freebie which Anice is so kindly giving away for this month to help you with this challenge
Your freebie can be downloaded from the Funky Hand website, look for the freebie in the downloads section.

The other change to the challenge set up is that you will have to come back here every third day this month when a different DT member will be showcasing their project, so remember to follow this blog so you know when a new project has been uploaded- there will also be instructions and some tutorials on how the projects have been made

This way you won't forget to enter the challenge, still thinking you have all month and then before you know it the month has disappeared and your entry not completed and you lost the chance to win your choice of download from the shop

The fifteenth of this month is special in another way- it's the launch of OUR BETTY, four new fantastic clear stamp collections from Funky Hand and believe me they are wonderful to work with and you get a clear image all the time because of the deep etching on the acrylic
And to celebrate Betty's launch I have made her go round in circles

For this circular card I used papers from Man's World from the Now That's Funky CD.

I used a CD as a template and traced the circle onto card stock then covered the front with my paper and inked the edges

Scored and folded the circle in half and cut a scalloped circle from a nestie and inked the edges of the circle

Used the circle nestie to cut another circle from the dotty paper and attached to scalloped circle

Stamped and coloured Betty (from the Celebrate collection)with Pro markers and inked the edges again then layered her and some feathers, ribbon, flowers and button on to the card

Hope my card has given you some inspiration but if it hasn't then you must make sure you return on the 18th when Jules will be showcasing a stunner for you!

So go grab your freebie and Get Funky!

you have until 7pm on the 14th February to enter by providing your link below
