Creative Embellishments - August Challenge

Calling all challenge lovers! 
There is a new challenge this month at Creative Embellishments and there is a really cool prize to be won.  As usual, you must use at least one element from their picture prompt to be inspired and with an additional twist to also use something circular on your project.  Create a NEW project: layout, mini album, tag, or card as of August 1, 2016.  Next, make a blog post sharing your project and then visit the CE Blog to add your entry to the InLinkz box to be eligible for the prize. So get going...there is still time to enter.
                                                 The deadline to enter is August 30.

                                                     Window Kitty Spider Web Card
I was inspired by the starry sky in the picture prompt to create my stamped Halloween card featuring a kitty, his jack-o-lantern, and some friendly spiders.  The luminous moon (my circular element) overhangs the edge of the card and was stamped with a humorous sentiment. The starry sky was stamped and heat embossed with silver. Next, various blue alcohol inks were applied over the stars.  All the elements were stamped except the spider web which is a svg digital cut file.  Finally, the little spiders were stamped onto transparency and black gems added for their bodies & heads.  The top spider dangles from a sparkly fiber and adds a fun kinetic element to the card.

 Hot Air Balloon Card
I still had more inspiration and wanted to do a card with a hot air balloon and luckily my friend lent me her stamp as it had a circular balloon. I used many beautiful shades of hot pink which complimented the breast cancer awareness theme.
where you will find all the details and the picture prompt.
