Totally Gorjuss (GDT) - Circles

It's Saturday!  Welcome to another challenge at Totally Gorjuss.  As you can see from my card below, the challenge is Circles this week.  Please visit the challenge blog to view the rest of the DT's cards... there are some awesome creations for your inspiration.

This was a real challenge for me.  I've never made a circle card before and had to ask a friend of mine how to cut this Marianne Die so that it doesn't cut all the way through.  So... armed with a few notes, I set about inserting the die onto the paper and voila!... here's my Circle card.  I'm into the Clean and Simple cards right now... no image.  The beautiful paper is a pad called Annalee, a purchase from Crafty Emma's Store in the UK and I think the sentiment is from LOTV.  Made a bow out of seam binding, a purchase from Creative Treasures.  The gorgeous cherry blossom is also from them and the flat backed pearls from Paola.


Our sponsor this week is Crafter's Companion... do pay them a visit.  Thanks for popping by.  Have a super crafting weekend.  It's cold and wet in Cape Town... finally we have typical August weather in the Cape.
