Be Happy Inspiration

Pfaltzgraff Patio Garden was the inspiration for this card. I saw the pattern in a catalog and thought 'that would make a great card'! I've never made a circle card, but I kind of like it and will definitely do it again.

I cut out my circles first. I used a wheel on the turquoise layer, inking it up with white craft and then just wheeling in a circle. It smears slightly and is a little distorted, but I think it turned out pretty good! I also took my white gel pen and highlighted and filled in the wheeled part. I sponged celery ink on the edge of the celery circle. The main image was stamped in versamark on the respective colors, embossed in white, cut out, and layered. I used a mini glue dot to adhere the halfback pearl to the center.

stamps - True Friend, Boho Friend wheel, So Many Sayings
paper - chocolate chip, tempting turquoise, certainly celery
ink - chocolate chip, white craft, certainly celery, versamark
acc - white embossing powder, circle cutter, 1-1/4" circle punch, white halfback pearl (Pretties kit)
