WMSC11 & Color Throwdown 107 - Thanks for being my friend

Over at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge there's an interesting scalloped circle sketch this week. And my color inspiration was from the Color Throwdown challenge. I'm intimidated by circle cards, I'll admit it. But I was up for a challenge today (what's one more today...as today also starts graduate school! YIKES!). So here's the sketch:



And here's my take:



The scalloped circle edge made me think of flowers once I had my two scalloped circles, one red, one yellow cut out. I used my Silhouette....DH will be proud I put it to good use today! I offset the two circles and then I thought I had a pretty fun flower. I made the center with more red and a circle stitched stamp from the Waltzingmouse Stamps set Faux Fun Circles. And what's a flower without a butterfly? So I pulled out Waltzingmouse Stamps Earth Angel to create my own pink and green butterfly and sentiment. :) It's a little bit of a stretch on the sketch, I'll admit, but it got me to think outside my nice square-card box!

Thanks for stopping by!
