Thanks sweetie!

Oh, we had a bit of a hair raising day yesterday.  We had severe flooding and we got kicked off the train on my way home from work - nowhere near what I live!  My poor husband had to drive to pick me up  through the treacherous rain and then drive me back through it, navigating through our narrow country lanes.  Whew, we eventually got home after midnight, but at least we got home!

Anyhoo, I'm here because there's a new challenge over at Little Miss Muffet and this fortnight the theme is circles - my favourite type of shaped card!  So here is my DT make using sweet Chives...

I matched her up with My Minds Eye Miss Caroline All Dolled Up papers and I used the sweet flowers from the CC Cutters Branch and Petals die.  The sentiment is from the Lil' Inker Designs 2 Cute Ink Artic Friends set (love that font!).

You can check out more layered inspiration over at the Little Miss Muffet challenge blog!

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
