Celebrate in the Round

My last post was a more traditional New Years card. For this card I thought I'd celebrate with a bit of a grunge style. My card design is based on this week's Mojo Monday challenge of round or square. I decided that it would be fun to go round. This week's Cheery Lynn Design challenge is celebrate with at least one Cheery Lynn die used. The back panel is cut from Core'dinations kraft core using the French Pastry Doily die.
The Grungy Monday challenge (sponsored by Simon Says Stamp)  is Get out the tissues -- use Tim Holtz's tissue wrap or tissue tape. To create the background panel, I covered a piece of cardstock with a piece of terminology tissue wrap and die cut the circle. I covered the piece with distress inks, spattered drops of water to have a bleach effect, and then covered it with rock candy crackle paint.
The Created by Hand challenge this week is Out With the Old/Flower Die Cuts. I also used layers of the terminology tissue wrap for my die cut flower. Finally, the Take a Word challenge this week is Print. Isn't that terminology tissue paper great!
