Going round in circles

This is for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge.

It's the first time I've ever made a circular card and I drew round a saucer for the basic card shape and then used some of my Nestabilities in my Cuttlebug to cut the smaller circles.

The little hedgehog is another one of the printed samples given me by Kath and I coloured it with Copic markers again. The 'Lots of Love' stamp was part of a freebie set from a craft magazine and I stamped it with Versafine 'Satin Red'. A little white ribbon bow and some sparkly dots finishes it off.


  1. Hi Ali....great job on your first ever circle the colour combo and great colour work on your hedgie...thanks for playing along this week at PBSC and enjoy the rest of the weekend
