Happy Friday everyone!  Yay it's almost weekend and that means craft time!

I'm sharing a quick post today with my Thanksgiving card.  It is a circle card and I love shaped cards!

I've also decorated the inside with a mat and coordinating paper:

I have quite a bit of the patterned paper and am working hard to use it whenever possible.  I thought it is a nice touch to tie the inside of the card with that patterned paper on the front, don't you think?  The difficult part for me is to line up the circular segment with the sentiment.  The sentiment must go parallel with the chord, and I was so scared that I would mess up.  A big relief when I got it on the first try. 

This is my second time coloring the image on the front, except that I am using watercolor pencils this time while I used markers the first time.  I can't decide which medium I like better.  Perhaps I should color it again on a different occasion to make a comparison.

My card is entering the following challenges:
