Stamptacular Sunday Challenge: Going in Circles

This week on the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge our challenge is to create a project or a card that has as many circles on it as you can possibly include without making it gaudy.

Our sponsor is:

DESIGN TEAM POSITIONS OPEN...see this LINK for all the details!

I'm so ready for spring and thought I would make a spring like card, so I can look at flowers and greenery for a change! We did get a touch of sun a few days ago and that was a nice change, but alas snow has descended upon us and we're back to grey skies and winter white landscapes once again!

For this challenge, I decided I wanted to go delicate with my circles card, so I included buttons, pearls and a wreath like element. To make my wreath I ran my white paper through my cuttlebug with both the circle and scallop circle dies, I then inked the edges in brown, ran in through my Xyron and added the glitter. I then stamped the leftover circle, and then pop dotted my wreath off of it (no wasted scraps!). I added my button flowers and wall la, I'm done! Thanks for joining me today, I can't wait to see what you've come up with!
