Circular Angles...?


What a day yesterday was! 

Did you all enjoy the Release Day Blog Hop? I sure did, my Design Team and April's Guest Designer Taheerah ROCKED this release. If you missed the fun yesterday, you can catch up on the blog hop HERE. There is still time to comment and be in the chance of winning the grand prize!

Thank you to everyone who took the time to stop by the blog yesterday, commented and hopped along with us and placed orders. Your following, support & custom is truly appreciated. 

So, with all the excitement yesterday I didn't get much time to ink my stamps up but I did squeeze in half an hour last night to make this one...

I saw the new CAS(E) this Sketch! layout below & HERE and instantly my brain thought Background Builders: Round In Circles! At first I had a tough time choosing which stamp to use but decided on the open polka dot. I'd also seen the new The Play Date Cafe challenge colours seen below & HERE and instantly had to use them as they are 3 SU! 2011-2013 In Colours which I LOVE! 

I didn't use the NEW BRIGHT Butterflies Designer Dies on any projects yesterday *gasp* so decided they should be used today on this card for the focal element. I'm addicted to layering them with vellum to soften the colour below. I also decided it needed some more circle elements so mounted the die cut  layered butterfly onto a layered circle die cut stamped with the 'grunge' circles from Background Builders: Round In Circles. The sentiment is from Flower Power #1...

I've one more card to share with you today which I made a while back...

This card is featured on the reverse of the Pure Florals: Chrysanthemum clear stamp set! I used the Rock 'n' Roll technique to create the ombre yellow/orange effect to the large solid flower in the stamp set. 

I hope you've enjoyed todays projects, I'll be back tomorrow with more to share. Thanks for stopping by.
