Circle Punch Flower!

Saturday Greetings!

Welcome to the weekend, hope it will be a great one for you!  Our temps are to be somewhat fall like, I'm SO looking forward to that!!

I have a happy card to share today!  

Happy Birthday Jamie!
Echo Park - Hello Summer papers
SU! circle & oval punches

I used my oval punch for the leaves & circle punches to create this fun flower!  I cut around the six circles randomly then snipped off bits here & there. Sponged the edges, used my stylus to score lines around each flower layer and finally a metal ball stylus to roll around inside them to lift them up a bit.  too fun!

Today, we're celebrating Jamie's birthday with a hop!

The hop starts @ Jamie Lindstrom Designs, be sure to wish her a happy birthday and read all the hop info!

If you're hopping along, you would have arrived here from Crafty Creations by Jill!

Have a happy day!
