Mojo Monday sketch challenge

Really didn't think I was going to get anything posted on my blog this health is still not good but I managed to get in my craft room for an hour yesterday in between resting...crafting is soo therapeutic for me and I was so glad I made the effort.

I found a fab sketch challenge over at Mojo Monday,
which is called Round or Square.

I like both sketches, but the round version of this sketch really appealed to me.

My scalloped circle is quite large, and I used part of an acrylic scrap album as a template. The flowers were made using E K Success daisy punches, and I used a compass cutter to cut my large circles.

The papers are called Regency by Papermania, and the sentiment is by Cloud 9.

I just added some ribbon and bling to finish.

I really enjoyed this sketch and will definitely use it again.

Well, I have several birthdays coming up so I'm off to make a few cards and then take it easy for the rest of the day. Hope you all have a fab weekend.

Hi Sarita!

I hope you are feeling better soon!

This round card is amazing! I would never have seen that you have used that punch for the flowers. I have that punch to, but I would not have recognized it. What you do with them to make them special is so great! This is why I always come to your blog for inspiration.

I have something for you in my blog.
