I´m running around in CIRCLES

I couldn´t resist Challenge 7 with the Creative Card Crew as their theme this week is Round and Around set by the lovely Paula. I have been threatening to make a circular card so grabbed this opportunity with both hands and enjoyed myself. This card also qualifies for Challenge #29 with the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge whose theme is for Shaped Cards.



I used my largest circular nestie for the main frame, ok I had a couple goes at this as first try was a catastrophe. WOJ Henry is coloured with my trusty prisma´s, feel I am now getting the hang of these,and glamour dust to the icing. Paper is the freebie from May´´s Cardmaking & Papercraft and flowers from The Hobby House.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and the sun shines brightly for you.

Hi Nicola, Wow, what a great idea, I love the round card and those flowers are gorgeous, I need to order some of those. Amazing colouring, I wish I could colour like you.
How did you attached the back to the front, if you see what I mean, or did you fold the card then run it through, I'd love to know how you did it.

Have a great weekend
