Crafty Secrets "Going in Circles" Challenge

Today over on the SCS Crafty Secrets Forum Challenge , hosted by Pammyjo, we have been asked to use "CIRCLES" in our creations.

Circles is something I don't think to use with the exception of maybe the matting of my main image. I don't use a lot of polka-dots & circles so this was a true challenge for me. Here is what I've come up with.

I've used my Creative Memories cutting system to cut my base card. The overlaying designer paper is from the Crafty Secrets Pastel pack and the right side floral scroll is also on that sheet of designer paper which I have cut out with my swivel craft knife and added PKGlitz glitter to for added sparkle & dimension. I sponged the outer edge of my card using Ranger Tattered Rose ink then again using Ranger Vintage Photo ink. My sentiment circle is an image from the Crafty Secrets Bird Notes stamp set which has been stamped onto vanilla cardstock using Ranger Vintage Photo ink and clear embossed. I also sponged around the outside using Ranger Tattered Rose ink before removing it from the Nestabilities circle diecut. The Pretty in Pink, Purely Pomegranate & Old Olive circles were also cut using Nestabilities dies. I used a round tip Creative Memories black marker to add the dots around the scalloped mat. The gems are by Bow-tique and the ribbon is Offray.

This was certainly a FUN challenge and I can't wait to see what the other ladies come up with. They always amaze & inspire me! Don't forget, if you have ANY Crafty Secrets/Heartwarming Vintage products , please come play in our challenge ... we would love to be inspired by you too!!
