I have been going in Allsorts of circles

Going round and round on my sewing machine and I just did not want to stop!
teheehehee But I have....
and now my card is finished.

At Allsorts this week the challenge theme is


and our sponsors are:


For my card I have chosen to make a child's card for a boy so still masculine.

I used the sketch from Deconstructed Sketches
I have used the Circus Seal image which is from Digi Darla

and coloured it with distress inks and added glossy accents and black gel gloss pen, cut the circles with circle nesties and sewn them into place with random sewing, different stitches.

added a couple of Metal star brads that I have had I think forever! well at least since I started crafting.. and stamped the ticket sentiments direct onto the papers and then lastly scuffed the edges to distress it a little.

Here are some challenges I am joining with my card:

Clear It Out! - Circles Stash - Anything Goes - brads and papers
Dilly Beans - Metal Accents - Brads
Fussy and Fancy - Circles

Have a great day
and don't forget to come and join us at
