April 19/11  "Circle - Cola Flower A Smile"

Created: April 17, 2011

Size: 5"w x 5"h

This weeks theme is the Circle

This week's theme over on Created By Hand is "circles" and the rest just happened...

The quote is from Quietfire Design.

I folded my white cardstock in half and cut it with my Circle Scissors (EK Success) then cut off a small flat area on the bottom so the card wouldn't roll around...

Sponged Distress stamp pads Scattered Straw & Mustard Seed. Ran through embossing machine with the Sizzix Swirls embossing folder. Swiped Worn Lipstick on the high points and clear embossed.

Die cut the Spellbinders Beaded Circle from white cardstock, dry embossing and then coloring with Worn Lipstick. Stamped a decorative border (Just Rite "Plant a Little Love" set) with Versafine Black Onyx.

Die cut a smaller Spellbinders Beaded Circle sponging some Scattered Straw and some Lipstick. Stamped the quote with the black. Adhered one beaded circle to the other, then onto the card.

Die cut the flower with Tim's Sizzix Tattered Flower die from a Cola can, using the right side this time. Added a yellow toned paper flower and then another die cut but the inside of the can this time. Attached them all together and to the card with a large rhinestone jewelled brad.

As a final touch added dots of Liquid Pearls "Buttercup" & Stickles Distress "Picket Fence"
