Another circular card - sorry!

Hi all!  Hooray, hooray, it's Friday today!  I just love my weekends!  I love my job too, but I just luuurve my weekends more!  I hope you all have fabby things planned - we don't and that's just the way I like it!  But you're not interested in my waffle, so here's my card for today using more delicious Quixotic Paperie goodies!!

It's another circular card but this time I've used my Grand Nestie circle dies instead my usual mini circle cards....



You just gotta love those Wee Stamps for Whimsy Stamp!  This is Sylvia Zet's Wee Stamps Sweet Blossom matched up with Echo Park Sweet Summertime papers (currently 25% off!).  For the border I used my Sew Easy Tool with the Scallop Head and yellow floss.

For embellishment I used 4mm flat backed pearls and created some sublte bling with my Viva Decor Glitter Liner pen on the image and smeared on Make It Crafty Butterfly and Leaves lasercut chipboard.



Et voila!  A sweetie in the making!  And there is still plenty of time to join in with this month's Quixotic Inspirations sketch for a chance to win a £15 voucher - just link up your gorgossity here!


That's it from me today - I'll be around to visit my blog pals (that means YOU!) later today!  ttfn!


I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Sally said...

Hey Mary J.....so another weekend is over :( Hope it was a good one.
Love this card, the colours are so cheery.
I have some Prismas and some Polychromos. The Prisma pencils have more wax in them and so are softer but leave more of a waxy haze. Do you use Sansador to blend? I really struggle with the shading in terms of where the light falls.....I tend to start colouring before I think about it and then the shadows are not right :(
Well best go and get ready for tomorrow.
Night night, hugs Sally xxx
