Circular Patterns

I realized once I sat down to post these cards that all of them have circles on them....rounding out the day!

This blossom - which is from the Pretties Kit- was painted with a mixture of Crystal Effects with some drops of re-inker added to it so that it was Rich Razzleberry. Once the whole flower was covered I dipped it into Dazzling Diamonds to coat it. The petals are a little bit stiffer than usual because of the Crystal Effects. The centre of the flower is just a 1" circle covered with Crystal Effects and coated with microbeads. Challenges covered in this card:
Splitcoast - Colour Challenge 262
Our Creative Corner Sketch Challenge- sketch
The Corrosive Challenge - Texture
365 Cards - Glittery Blossoms
Our Creative Corner - Bows

I bought a package of window sheets quite a while ago and
finally pulled them out to use them. I like how vibrant they look on top of a darker colour.
Challenges for this card:
Card Positioning System - Sketch
CCEE - Silhouettes on the Shade

Finally - I happened across a challenge that involved shoes...Daring Cardmakers - "If the Shoe Fits". I haven't used this big shoe in YEARS...so I decided to pull it out and do the challenge. The sketch from Card Patterns worked perfectly with it.

I hope you are having a restful Sunday. Thanks for stopping by.
