Heart 2 Heart - Full Circle

Welcome to this week's Heart 2 Heart challenge!

We are going full circle this week - make sure you use circles on your project. 

I used several circles - the background pattern, the sentiment shapes and the centre of the flower are all circles. 

This card is based on a gorgeous card created by Susan Opel for Scrapbooks and Cards Today. I loved her design and wanted to try it in a different colour scheme. 

The background was created using a circle stencil (die cut from the Artbooking Cricut cartridge) on black cardstock with Black Diamond Stickles. That piece was mounted on craft foam and then on Blue Belle glitter paper. I cut the centre out of the Blue Belle glitter paper as only the edges show - no point in wasting all that great paper! 

The sentiment was stamped and die cut with the Stitched Circle Dies and the outline was die cut with the next largest circle. I cut some strips of patterned paper and dovetailed the edges. They were placed side by side. The flower and leaves were stamped in black and and left uncoloured. I added some shimmer on the flowers and leaves using the Clear Shimmer Brush. 

Come and join us at Heart 2 Heart and show us how you interpret the Full Circle challenge! 

You have until the end of August to link up your project.
