Going Round in Circles

Good morning. Today I would like to share a card I have made for a friend's birthday. I decided to have a go at making a circular card.

I was a very lucky lady to receive a Cricut Expression for Christmas from my DH and I used it to cut the scalloped circles - the base one is 6" and the middle layer one is 4" with a plain 5" circle in between.
I cut 2 of the 6" scalloped circles and scored and glued them together at the top to create the basecard.
The gorgeous new Penny Black image has been stamped and layered onto a lacey edge circle cut using my nesties.
Image coloured with PM's and a touch of Glossy Accents added to the balloons.
To finish it off - a few Wild Orchid Crafts roses and some adhesive pearls form Hobby House Crafts.
Sentiment - Craftwork Cards

I am quite pleased with how this turned out - and no Designer Paper in sight lol!!!
I will make some of these for sure - watch this space!

Challenges I would like to enter are:
PaperPlay Challenge - Clean and Simple
Fab N Funky - Anything Goes
Creative Cottage - Something New
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Charisma Cardz - Birthdays & Celebrations

Yesterday I decided to purchase some wool and knitting needles so I could have a go at making something special for each of my forthcoming Grandchildren - now that sounds weird typing that lol!!!
Watch this space for the finished articles.

Thanks for popping over.
Have a wonderful day.
