The Flower Challenge #49 - Circle/Circles

Hello friends.  I'm playing along with this month's Flower Challenge where they are looking for a CIRCLE/CIRCLES along with a flower on your card.

I chose to work with Altenew's Handpicked Bouquet and came up with this card...


I started by stamping my image from the Handpicked Bouquet with black ink and then temporarily adhered a 3" circle over the center of my stamped image before stamping again (with the use of my MISTI).  I used shades or orange (Gina K inks) to stamp my flower so it looked a little more Fall-ish and obviously greens for the leaves.


  At this point I removed the circle and added my splatters so that the circle was left with just the stamped image and no splatters (makes the circle stand out a bit more).  I added a black mat and adhered both to a top folding card base, and then added my sentiment (also from the Handpicked Bouquet set) and a few clear faceted gems.


You can check out all the BEAUTIFUL inspiration from the DT and play along HEREThe Flower Challenge is also celebrating their 4th birthday, so there are prizes to be won this month if your card with a Flower and a Circle on it are chosen!  Happy Birthday to all of you at The Flower Challenge!
 

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
