My 1st 'Get Funky!' Challenge - Yay! :)

Well I said I had another Challenge project to share and so without further ado... this is it! :)

It's a special one as this is my first submission for a Get Funky! challenge. Although I love the Funky Hand cd roms that I have I couldn't take part until I started my blog - woo!
This months challenge was Going Round In Circles (see challenge here!) and Anice offered a freebie backing paper download on the Funky Hand website.

I though the paper would make a fab base for my double easel card (my 1st go at this technique also!) and I punched out two circles from the sheet of paper, mounted on foam pads, to use as the stoppers.
The sentiment is sizzix, the scallop circle a nestie, the large butterfly a DC die and I have no idea where the mini punch for the other butterflies came from lol!

The jar is so inkeeping with the theme as the whole thing is decorated with circles! :)
Again using nesties I cut the two patterned paper circles and layered up with a scalloped circle in between. On the top to finish it off is a large green brad and a clear gem.
To jazz the sides of the jar up a bit and use up the odd leftover circles from my A4 sheet I used a circle punch to cut the shapes and then added ribbon between two back-to-back circles and fixed it over the wire closure for detail.

I'm so pleased with how both of these came out, fab new card technique and, although it was meant to be a gift jar to go with the thank you card, I'm going to have to make another one as this one now lives on my crafty shelves filled with my favourite type of cakey/biscuit snack!!!
TFL. :) x
