Birthday Rose

I made this card for a few different challenges. First, the colors came from Color Dare (cd58). Next the layout came from Just Us Girls (jugs23). Finally, the piercing touch was from a challenge over at Crazy 4 Challenges (c4c27).

For some reason circles scare me! I don’t have a problem using stamps in the shape of circles, but I shy away from using circle layers. I’ve done two sketches in the past two days that had circles as their focals – ack! talk about pushing one’s self! Both times I ended up not using an actual circle mat but using stamps with circular shapes (though I’m sure yesterday’s tree pushed that boundary, lol). I find it much easier to handle that way!

Happy Birthday
