Paper Therapy-October 4 2010

Hello all!! Welcome to the first challenge of  Paper Therapy.  Paper Therapy is an online forum for scrapbookers and card makers to share their work, meet new friends, learn new tips and techniques and have fun!! I hope you can join us every week in our challenges!

  Here's how it works. Every monday a new challenge will be posted in the forum. You upload your design   and have the chance to win the weekly challenge. A fabulous prize and winner blinkie will be awarded the first challenge winner of every month, and then subsequent challenge winners will win an awesome blinkie to share with the whole world, showing them that you rocked the  Paper Therapy challenge.

This week's challenge was based on the following sketch.

Here's my take on the piece.

Stamps behind the label die cut
draws the viewer's eye to the circle focal point.

A close-up detail of the decorative tape wrapped around the 
circle makes a fun new pattern! 

Love the ribbon from Praire Bird Boutique

  I had sooo much making this first card for the challenge, and I hope you play along! Have a blessed day!
