Ooooh, a circle card.... gotta try that!

So on a recent trip around blogland I saw some beautiful circle cards on Melly and Clare's blogs.... I definitely had to have a go at that! Never done it before though so I found this fab tutorial at AddINKtive Designs and had a go. I have to say, I'm quite pleased with the results. The image is Cupcake from Squiggle Stamps and has been coloured with promarkers. The papers are Daisy and Dandelion Picnic Patch and the sentiment is a freebie stamp from a Docrafts mag. It's all done with my nesties and then I added some punched flowers (plum flower, woodware) with brads for centres. Ta-da! A piece of cake (groan.....)!

Challenges:
Simon Says Stamp - Coffee and Cream
Sarah Hurley - Round cards
Paper Play - Let's get sentimental
Ladybug Crafts Ink - 3 flowers, 2 DPs, 1 image

Right, time to go and cook the tea! See you again soon.
Love 'n' hugs,
