going round in circles

This week on CCT the challenge is for circles on your creation. We are being sponsored by Simon Says Stamps, do stop by the CCT blog for all the details and to admire the fabulous DT creations!

On my card I've used the cute Christmas with Dawn stamp from Nellie's Choice, but made a birthday card instead - the image works don't you think? I must look out for a 1st birthday stamp as I think that would be the perfect finishing touch. I've coloured with Copics, used a couple of digi papers from my stash then fixed the circular lace ribbon across and finished with an organza bow and the punched leaves and flowers. There's also inked edges, Stardust Stickles and then the pearls are made with my Cream Waco pearl maker pen. My pictures are looking fuzzy again, although at least it's almost straight this time!

Copic colours:
skin tones with E000, 00, 21 and a touch of R00 blush
hair with YR30, 31, 21 and 23
pinks are RV00, 63 and 66
then the rest is the E40 range through to E44 plus E81

I'm going to enter my card with Stampavie and More who have a birthday theme this week, then A Spoonful of Sugar are looking for pink and brown creations, and the Oldie but a Goodie blog are after ribbon and lace.
