"Circles - New Beginning"  5"w x 7"h
I used my EK Success "Orbis" circle scissors to cut the circular edges from the front of a basic 110# white cardstock, jotting down the number size of each circle, so I could cut a smaller one for that area later. I used various decorative papers, even some wrapping paper for the inset circles. I used Pan pastels in a couple shades of yellow and ochre for the front and some reddish browns for the inside border edge. The center rectangular piece is a nice textured woven kind of thin paper. Rubber stamped the quote (Quietfire design "Every End") using two shades of Versafine stamp pad (Vintage Sepia with dabs of Red Satin). I also added one of my calligraphic Peel Offs sentiments which are sold under the label of Elizabeth Craft Designs (ecraftdesigns). All the corners were rounded with a large corner rounder punch.

The inside border was done with Pan Pastels and then I rubber stamped the circle border (Hero Arts clear Foloral Border stamp set) with Brilliance  "Coffee Bean" and embossed with Queen's Gold embossing powder. Added some gold toned parchment paper, right to the border edges.

NOTE: These are some of my calligraphic word sentiment Peel Offs on the "Elizabeth Craft Design" labels. There are 12 styles available at the moment. They come in four different colors (gold, silver, black, and white); "Thank You", "It's a Boy, It's a Girl", "You're Invited" Congratulations" "Happy Birthday & "Love", "Friends", "Thinking of You", "Xmas Seasonal", "Xmas" & Happy Anniversary". There are a few more coming out some time in 2009 or early 2010.
