Circles, Circles, Circles!

There is a beautiful sketch this week at Simply Stampin' - take a look


I've been wanting to play along with this challenge all week and I'm cutting it very fine doing it this morning and as I was getting prepared to make it I was thinking - it better be a quick one. Then I got this idea in my head of how I wanted it to be and it ended up taking me forever! You've heard of Three Minute Thursday - well this was very close to being Five Hour Friday!
Any way here is my card


I started off by stamping my border with the long stamp from Bordering on Romance, I then coloured it with a Cherry Cobbler and Lucky Limeade Stampin' Write marker. I then added a square of Cherry Cobbler card stock on to which I layered my circles. My circles have been stamped with more images from Bordering on Romance and again coloured with the markers - sparkly rhinestones were added to the centres. My teeny tiny sentiment is from Pennant Parade and I have added some punched Boho Blossoms.

I know it took a long time to make this card but it did take my mind off things that are going on at the moment. I shall be away from blog-land for a few days (I will be scheduling some posts) - I am going to visit my Granddad. He's not well and this week we got him into a care home so I'm off to make sure he is settling in OK. I'll be back later in the week with some *BIG* news for you so make sure you pop back at the end of next week - bye for now - Jacqueline xx
