Friends with Flair

So happy to join my Unity friends today!  We start a new challenge for this month.  You have until August 14th to create a card that incorporates circles.  You can play along with the challenge and get all the deets HERE.

Here is my circle card using…

better together

I love the flowers from the kit.  I masked and layered them in the center panel.  I also went a little crazy with the liquid pearls.  Initially, I only put dots in the button centers.  But I kept thinking there seemed to be too much weird white space… so I kept adding dots and more dots and more dots.  Ha.  But it seemed to work out in the end.

Make sure you head back to the Unity Friends with Flair post to see all the wonderful projects.

stamps: better together {Unity Stamp Co}
patterned paper: Summertime collection {Echo Park}
