Sketches! {by Tamara}

Hurray it's Thursday!!........and another great sketch for you over at Sketches! today and some fabulous inspiration by the Design Team too :) It's always a great suprise to see what the other girls on the Team have done with the sketch, especially this week as it is a circular sketch and i LOVE those ones!
For my design today i began by cutting two 51/2" circles from kraft cardstock with my Cricut machine and the George cartridge. I added a scalloped circle from the Karen Russell 'Narratives' collection by Creative Imaginations.
The focal flower portion was created with scraps of Basic Grey paper and various punches, with a Making Memories dotty paper flower and button centre. The ribbon and tiny alpha's are also MM, and the black gems are Hero Arts. To get the card to stand up, you just trim a tiny portion off the bottom of the back part!

This design had me jumping out of my box a little as there is no stamping, but actually i love how it's turned out!...........maybe i should try more cards with my scrappy supplies..............at this rate i'm never going to use them for scrapbooking as i can't seem to stop making cards and take time out to complete a page!!!

Hope you can join us this week, i would love to see how you interpret the circle aspect!
Thanks for popping in today...... ;-D

  14. Thanks for your comments Carol, I really must get a scollop edge punch, but I was happy how the flowers turned out in the end. I haven't tried a circle card yet, so maybe with your inspiration on how it is done, I will have a go.
