Colourful Circles

Good day all,

We are lucky enough to have another long weekend but it's a scorcher today!   Great excuse to hide indoors and watch the Olympics!   No family dinner this Sunday....our kids are up north at cottages so DH and I will most likely go out for dinner...yeah, no cooking!   

I've been playing in my craft room again and here is what I've come up with......an easle card using Grand Nestabilities scallop and circle dies.  The image is a cute Make it Crafty digi called Lizzie with Gift.  Coloured with Copics.  Sentiment is a Die-namics set called Polka Dot Greetings from MFT.


Here's a secret....the bow is paper pieced...first attempt was really, really bad but instead of sending the whole thing to the trash bin...I coloured a new bow, cut it out and put it on top.  The dimentional effect works and saved the day  :)

Thought I would enter the following challenges.

Crafty Ann's Challenge #70  - Circles - I have 9 that make the card :)
Digi Design Challenge - No Squares


That's all for now, thanks so much for stopping by.  Hugs, Pat K.
