Circle Moo Cards

This week's challenge at "Something Completely Different" is still Moo Cards, but this time the theme is 'circles'. I made one yesterday:
I cut the white card and a piece of scrap paper to size. I used a 5p piece to draw circle outlines on the scrap paper then pricked holes at regular(ish) intervals through both layers. I then used my Silent Setter to punch holes through the card. I stuck strips of coloured handmade paper behind so the colours show through the holes.

This morning I looked at it again and changed my mind! I carefully pulled away the strips of paper and stuck a piece of denim fabric behind the card instead. Then I attached a few beads with needle and thread to create a fringe:
I prefer the second version :-) But I think maybe the first photographed better :-(

I've had a lovely day today - looking forward to scrapping it :-)

I'd have to go with the colourful one myself - but on;y because I'm trying to steer myself away from blue - I'm surrounded by blue!!!

I like them both Mel.
A little while ago my local scrap store ran a class that used this technique on a layout - it drove me nuts as I had to punch holes all over a layout and it took forever! Are you sensing a trend here with me LOL! Anyway the end result was great but I've been scarred by the experience and not done it again. On a smaller element it is a great idea and I think that I could even manage that.
How do you find the time to try out so many interesting techniques?
