Paper Sundaes Challenge #51 - Circles

Happy Sundae!  For Paper Sundaes Challenge #51 and we are asking you to use circles on your creation....this can be your image, sentiments, buttons anything you like as long as it's a circle.  This week our sponsor is Lili of the Valley, home to some of the cutest stamps ever!  They are having a new release on Tuesday so be sure you don't miss it!
If you saw my last post where I listed 3 things about myself you will know that I'm my own worst critic however not this time!  I LOVE my card!  I think it's because the image of "Rosie Posy" is so darn cute and I paired her up with one of my favorite Paper Lines Bo Bunny!  This line is called Petal Pushers & I just giggled out loud because I just checked and the background one with all the flowers is called "Posies"!  I coloured the image with copics & cut out with my circle nesties.  The green background paper is this great banana leaf paper that I picked up the last time I was in the US and it has the greatest texture.  I really wish I had bought more than one sheet of it!  I added some flowers by Mulberry Street added some pearls (more circles) to the centre and some green stickles around the edges of the image.  I wanted to add even more sparkle so I used these cool puffy flourish stickers from Jolee's and a couple more rhinestones from the same set.   I also decided to add the green scallop circle with the image on it to the card using pop-up dots for added dimension & I love the way it looks!

Hope you are having a great weekend!  Make sure you check out the other DT creations plus we are having some DT members from Lili of the Valley play along with us this week & their work is something you don't want to miss!  Don't forget to check back next week too as Paper Sundaes is celebrating a birthday & we've got some great things in store for you :)
