Cute Card Thursday #173 - Going Round in Circles

Happy Thursday!

I have been on hiatus for a couple weeks, but I am back now with a new post for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge. Our challenge this week is to include a circle element on your creation. Here is my card...


Paper: DCWV
Accessories: Flowers, Pearls, Liquid Pearls, Lace, Doily, MS Leaves and Branch Deep Edge Punch


 During my hiatus, we camped for a week in the beautiful Rocky Mountains, days of listing to a river and staring at beautiful mountains and trees. Ahhh, relaxation. I had lots of down time to watercolor some images, including this one.


I have to admit, all the flowers in the bouquet are precolored. My airbrush has not seen the light of day in weeks. 


I added Pearls to the corners and Liquid Pearls to the image for a little extra zing. I aged the doily with Distress Ink.


There are several circle elements on my card, including the doily, the circles on the DCWV paper on the doily. the pearls, and even the dots on her dress.

I used the sketch from Just Magnolia.


Just Magnolia's sponsor this week is 7 Kids College Fund, and you have the chance to win a $20 voucher to the store.

I am also entering this card in the following challenges:
