Squigglefly Challenge #7

This weeks challenge over at Squigglefly is the "outside the box" technique ~ which simply put is to cut your image panel smaller than your image (without cutting through your image) and cut around the image where it sticks outside the "box". I have seen this done numerous times, but just never attempted it myself ~ now that I have I will definitely be doing this again.

I decided to incoporate some paper piercing to this card just to add some more interest since I kept the embellishments fairly simple.

Stamps: Turtle Taxi - Squigglefly; Sentiment - Small Sayings
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Copics (YR02, Y00, BV20, BV23, G82, G94)
Paper: Apricot Appeal, Barely Banana, Bordering Blue, Certainly Celery; Gina K Pure Luxury White; DP - Paper Pizazz
Embellishments: Dew Drops

Tools: Circle Punches; Key Tag Punch, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder

This card also makes number five for me for the following challenges this week: Cute Daisy Mae challenge for using circles and the Stamp with Fun challenge for using Dots.

What a great card! I love your use of circles (reminds me of the olympic rings) and the way you did your greeting is really cool!
