Going Round In Springy Circles

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a good weekend with St Patricks and Mother's Day! I had a wonderful day on Saturday at Stitch and Craft in Olympia so have lots of new crafty goodies and inspiration to play with - Hoorah!!

For this card I have combined two challenges: Inked Paws #2 Spring (you really must check out Kelly's Digis they are astonishingly beautiful!!) and Cupcake Craft Challenges #184 Going Round In Circles
Here is what I've done!

I clear embossed some flourish designs on the base card then inked over the top with my Distress Inks.
 I love this image from Inked Paws and when I say love, I mean LOVE!!!! She is called Bubbles and she is just amazing!! I know it's not the most spring like image but I was just so excited to use her. So have coloured her in with my distress inks in what I consider to be spring like colours! And added a bit of bling, although I hindsight I wish I had done these swirls in green so that they would be more like seaweed, oh well next time!
 Then I added some lovely vibrant flowers! I made the middle one, it's inked with Broken China Distress Ink and the other two are from Mulberry

 I cut out the image with my Scalloped Circles Nesties and also made a faux one to mat it on.
Haven't made a round card in a very long time, so it was fun and something different to crack out the round base cards!

  3. Hi Nat

    Gorgeous card!! I love round cards although I have not tried my hand at one yet.

    You have done a fabulous job of colouring this great little image. I think the blue bling works perfectly as it co-ordinates nicely with the fantastic flower that you made.

    Thank you for sharing with us at Make It Monday this week.
