#97 Round and Round

The theme is Round and Round for the challenge over at One Stitch at a Time. Check it out because we have two winners' prizes up for grabs this week. One is a 10$ gift certificate from The Robin's Nest


and the other is 3 Promarkers from Creative Craft World.

Come and join us and be lucky! My image is by Sylvie over at Stitchybear's Digital Stamps Store.

I decided to use a small, white, square Craft UK card blank and then I cut it in to a circular card using one of my Spellbinders Grand Nesties. I also cut a circle of gold card and then a smaller circle of red patterned paper as the backing frame to Sylvie's digi image of a Geisha Girl - isn't she beautiful?  I coloured her with my Promarkers, I do love using these as you know! The gold card I received in a Secret Santa parcel and the red paper is frorm Create and Craft. I made up a flower arrangement to echo the flower in her hair. I used a Wild Orchid Craft flower and backed it with leaves cut with a Crealies die. To make the wooden embellishment I cut a wooden cocktail stick in half and sanded the edges to smooth them. I think it looks quite effective, although I do say so myself. 

I'm entering this card in to the following challenges:
Whoopsi Daisy - Anything But Square
I love Promarkers Challenge 100 - Anything Goes - with Promarkers 
Raise the Bar - 'Ring' in the New Year - Circles
