Circle Flowers cu 06522
The Inspiration Challenge (IC496) today on Splitcoast is a Pinterest board w/ all manner of wreaths. I was inspired by THIS wreath with its colorful circles of flowers. I was also inspired by This card I saw on Pinterest..I thought the circle flowers were really cute.

I picked some different colors of card stock and punched out all the circles in different sizes. I think the largest is 1 1/2″ and the smallest is 1/2″. I could have used circle dies, but my trusty old punches were feeling neglected. The leaf is also a punch and the stems were made by just trimming some strips. 

When I attached all the circles, I purposely had the centers a little wonky…I thought it just added character. The white background was embossed with a honeycomb pattern and I only used a portion of the Wordy Birthday Greeting. I love that greeting because you can pick & choose what parts you want to use (if you don’t want the whole thing) and the fonts are all different. I ran out of the green card stock I used for the leaves, so I used a couple of green Copics to color the edges of the largest layer.

Thanks so much for stopping by! If you haven’t, please check out the DRS Thursday Challenge..this week, Over the Top (have your greeting on top). DRS images are not required!
