Can it really be Wednesday already?!  Wednesday = HAMBO Hoedown, and today's challenge is to make a round card.  I used Jellyfish paired with the Jelly Good Fellow sentiment for my card.  I decided to make an aquarium with my card.  I sponged the background with soft sky, baja breeze, and not quite navy.  Next, I took a scrap of crumb cake and stamped my jelly upside down, making his tentacles into seaweed.  After that, I fussy cut, aka cussy cut, them out.. Then I had some coffee. haha!  I added that panel on my round card, then added some Muddpuddles sand and a few shells and rocks my son and I gathered from our last trip to the beach.  I used Crystal Effects to glue them on.  I just had to take a close-up picture.  It looks so cool in real life!
Next, I stamped jelly (this time right side up), in black craft and embossed with clear powder.  This allowed me to bleach him out.  I stamped him again, cut out his body, colored it, then attached with a dimensional.  I stamped the sentiment, cut it out with a nestability and added it to the card. 

Now it's your turn!  Grab your Hambo rubber or digital images and create a circle card.  Follow the directions on the Hoedown Blog and get next week's featured digital image for FREE!!
